To our Veterans

If you live in Sonoma County, California, you can benefit from the currently offered H.A.V.E.  workshops and our Veterans Organic Peace Garden in front of the VA Clinic by the Sonoma County Airport.

They are FREE. 

Come visit our Garden and help us with the planting, maintenance like watering, and the harvest of vegetables, organically grown by folks in the community, Vets and non-Vets helping each other.
