  • War Veterans run a lawn care operation

    This is a neat story. 'the 15-acre urban garden hidden within the vast Veterans Administration complex conceals a plucky entrepreneurial enterprise wrapped around a comprehensive social rehabilitation program.' How cool is that, that this garden and business was able to get started and help veterans! What a great use of their property.

    Back to the Garden: A Green Jewel at the VA - In addition to its produce sales, the Vets' Garden operates a nursery/landscaping business and a full-service floral service which yield about $175,000 a year, says Bruce Rosen, president of the Friends of the Vets' Garden and the Westside Food Bank.

    Thirty-one war vets****from Korea, Vietnam and Kuwait****are working in the garden as part of a six-to-nine-month transitional program under the supervision of Merle Fishman, an occupational therapist in charge of the rehabilitative program in the garden.
