GET DIRTY with IIDA and Urban Blooms
Come join IIDA & Urban blooms prep garden beds used by the Veterans Administration Medical Center Community Outreach program.
 
Urban Blooms worked with two military veterans to establish a therapeutic gardening program in 2015. The project provides beneficial activities and education to veterans recovering from drug, alcohol, and PTSD-- all patients in the VA's Rehabilitation 8 South program.
