The Healing Ground has donated 69 pounds of produce to BMAC! The majority of this has been zucchini which have been producing like mad in the past week. We have also harvested pickling cucumbers and banana peppers. The tomatoes are finally starting to blush and ripen. The cherry tomatoes were first to start and today I spotted a beefsteak that was showing some pink color. The carrots are still working their way to maturity and the corn’s tassels are starting to look brown.
This week The Healing Ground has seen many volunteers. Sometimes, more than five vets will come out to the garden! It is such a dramatic and fantastic shift. I am very pleased with the new participation. Some of the guys even got together a few days ago and made a scarecrow! He is doing his job well. Every now and then I will look around the garden and think I have company but it’s only the scarecrow.
The Healing Ground has an article in the Walla Walla Union Bulletin today. It’s about the program and how it is working for the veterans. If you want to know more check out today’s issue of the Union Bulletin!Read More
