Cyn­thia in the gar­den

By Christo­pher Oak Reinier

Parse­ly, Sage, Rose­mary and… Toma­toes… pic of ec gardenAnd spinach, and let­tuce.  And the del­i­ca­cies go from gar­den to the savory lunch­es being served at the Empow­er­ment Cen­ter.

The gar­den­ers and the cooks are the mem­bers of the Cen­ter.  The expe­ri­ence of grow­ing their own food is a part of their learn­ing, not just to sur­vive, but to be self-suf­fi­cient and live an improved qual­i­ty of life.

The Empow­er­ment Cen­ter is indebt­ed to Vets Con­nect in Guerneville for their dona­tion of the mate­ri­als and the labor to cre­ate the beds for the boun­ti­ful gar­dens that have emerged.
