Lapel - For many who have a taste for homegrown vegetables but don’t have the time or space to grow their own, an established mental health project is made to order.
David Robb is farm manager of Harvestland, an organic garden project started six years ago by Barbara Scott, chief operating officer of Aspire. It is located two miles east of Lapel on Ind. 32.
“We have what is called community supported agriculture,” Robb said. The staff are hired as part of a transitional program for people with disabilities looking for a way to develop skills and work habits that will help them move into the work force.”
