VA Produce Donations
In 2016 Veterans Healing Farm donated over 8000 lbs of nutrient dense produce, 200 fresh pastries and loaves of artisan bread, 75 lbs of medicinal and culinary herbs, 80 jars of homemade salsa, and 50 mini salad pots. This plethora of nutritious goodness was grown with lots of love and donated free of charge each week to local veterans at the main entrance of the Asheville North Carolina VA hospital.
When we first kicked off this program in June we had no idea how incredibly impactful this simple heartfelt gesture would become. These weekly events provided real nourishment, physically and emotionally, feeding both the body and spirit. We are extremely grateful for the farm community members, volunteers, donors, and local businesses who made this vision possible.
