Operation Green Thumb
Operation Green Thumb is our wellness program for 2023.
Horticulture and gardening have been proven to increase wellbeing, and help with symptoms of anxiety and depression.
Who can apply: Any veteran with a PTSD rating of 50% or more (not the combined total, 50% for just that one condition of PTSD). The veteran must apply themselves, we do not accept applications from spouses. This program assists veterans of any service period, any branch, any MOS.
What you get: Depending on your grow zone and location, you will be sent any combination of seeds, soil, amendments, potting tools, living starter plants, books, and a link for a group for gardening support.
