"Learn, Grow, Heal"

Our Program

Reintegration for Service Members and their families after a deployment, time in service, or even during their service, holds multiple challenges at multiple angles.

Veterans push themselves to the max, drain their emotional tank, and physically exhaust themselves. Their family is pushed to the max, their emotional tank is drained, and they are physically exhausted. This psychological, physical, and emotional burden can, and has caused stress, depression, anxiety, or a combination of any of the three.

These three “weeds” (stress, depression, and anxiety) can overtake the Garden of our mind, but with proper cultivation and the right tools of care, these emotions can become manageable.

Create, Explore, and Learn

While we want to create, explore, and learn about gardening and horticulture, our primary goal is always on the wellbeing of you the service member and your family. This primary goal is broken down into six themes.

1. Create transferable skills Educate and train service members by providing them the opportunity to develop sufficient and appropriate skills within the landscape industry.

2. Create Independence – Adjustment and reintegration takes time. Nature does not happen overnight. This similarity is our focal point to adjust and develop habits of independence.

3. Personalize the Pathway – We will provide tailored support for service members by matching their skills and experience to their aspirations, even if outside the landscape industry.

4. Engage with the Family – Family is equally impacted and requires the same support. This can be a double-edged sword, as the family may be the first place to turn for support, or the cause of a service members struggles.

5. Track the Right Things – Understand before being understood. Study the transition and reintegration pathway for both service member and family member.

6. Invest to Reduce Transition Risk – Small increase in resources now to help transition the service member will impact the cost of a poor transition later.
