Long Beach VA Hospital Gardening Program  Sept 21, 9:30AM
The Long Beach Veterans Administration Hospital has created a gardening program where former military personnel can work with other vets in the cultivation of vegetables and fruits. The fruits of their labor are sold at local Farmers Markets and the proceeds go back into the running of the gardens. Gardening helps make the transition back into society a little easier.
