Pam Greenewald joins us to talk about Rose Garden Angels, Inc., a non profit that uses horticulture therapy to help those suffering from PTSD and other disorders. They currently have 8 Veterans growing roses and getting paid for every rose they grow. "It's quite an uplifiting experience for these veteran's to see how they can grow something that brings a lot of beauty to the world." says Pam.
"These roses are generally disease-free and most were created in the 1800’s. The roses have all been grown on their own roots organically. Our Care Card accompanies each purchase so you may continue to grow your rose in the natural tradition in which it began." said Greenewald.
