Meet Kenny Holzemer or Growing Veterans
I am super excited to connect with Kenny Holzemer who is making a difference in Veterans lives with gardening. This interview features the executive director of Growing Veterans in NW Washington State. Kenny is a veteran and just got done harvesting his tomatoes so this is a fun interview. Kenny is a mediator to make sure everyone has the resources for the program. There is formal support to help Veterans share their stories. This is ideally a way to help with mental health.

Photo Collection From Growing Veterans Organization
Kenny sent me some great photos to share. I love seeing what he shared via photographs because it totally makes the podcast come to life. Can you smell the fresh produce? I’ve never met anyone who didn’t garden and have a positive experience even when the plants don’t perform as expected. The organization has 3 organic farms where they teach gardening to vets.
