TESTIMONIALS

Robert Brown, disabled veteran and President of “Healing Families Ministries”

“This is one of the greatest projects I’ve ever been involved in; nobody else is providing this type of therapy on such a large scale for our disabled veterans. For the first time in 6 winters I was able to overcome my depression from PTSD while working at the Veterans Farm.”

Dr. Cid Nazir, Neurologist
“Picking blueberries is a form of physical therapy that will help veterans suffering from traumatic brain injuries to regain hand eye coordination, as well as develop cognitive skills”.

Denise W Bull, PHD
Clinical Psychologist
“Managing this business will enhance veterans sense of well being by improving their decision-making and problem-solving skills. Assisting other veterans should foster a sense of responsibility and improved self-esteem”.

Dr. Richard Corcoran, MD
“I expect veterans will be able to derive great improvement in their cognitive and motor skills, as well as enhanced self esteem, and confidence from this type of horticulture therapy”.

Patrick Sanders, Disabled OIF/OEF combat veteran.
“The Veterans Farm saved my life and my home from foreclosure. Since working at the Veterans farm I have been able to do something the doctors said I’d never be able to do and that’s quit the pain medications. Because I have a place to decompress I have even since quit smoking. Today the future is bright for me and my family”.
