The Veterans Garden sits on 15-acre inside the Veterans Administration Los Angeles Healthcare center. It was established in 1986 by Ida Cousino a horticultural therapist whose mental health career grew out of many years of experience for the United Farm Workers’ Union. Until she starts the program with 3 veterans and few fruit trees, there used to be one Vietnam veteran with his dog gardening it, all by himself. (image by Mathieu Grandjean)
