This article in yesterday's paper shows a veggie stand at a Mental Health Facility. I think it's a splendid idea. That of having people the opportunity to garden and sell the fruits of their labour. It would help greatly with their recovery.
Very good reading Blue and a terrific idea. There is nothing better for people to do to get back in touch with themselves and the world than to first get back in touch with the earth and hard work, for some reason the feeling of soil between ones toes makes for a very grounding and healing experience. I know that it had definetly got me through some hard times in the past.
