Duration: 0:26:46

Description: Gardens beautify, they feed, they serve as habitat for animals, and they do more. Some gardens become places that heal bodies and souls or inspire new beginnings. Such is the case with the locations we visit in this episode. In Poway, children joyfully garden with elders inflicted with dementia or Alzheimer's. In San Diego, a hospital garden helps children escape the monotony and pressures of long stays. In El Cajon, young adults with developmental disabilities find their lives' purpose in the garden. On a farm in Valley Center, military veterans are healing and creating new lives through the magic of growing.
