Farming may improve the mental health of war veterans

Posted: Updated:

New research shows farming may improve the mental health of war veterans.

Five foreign veterans participated in a farming program that teaches landscaping and agricultural skills.

Most of the vets said farming helped them feel more satisfied and less lonely.

Experts say farming acts as casual group therapy. It allows veterans to interact and compare experiences with people who truly understand what they have been through.
