At the Phoenix Houses of Texas adult residential program just south of Dallas, Texas, clients are growing in more ways than one. As part of the treatment program, there are vegetable gardens growing in both the mens’ and womens’ areas of the campus. The residents are taught basic gardening skills and are given the responsibility of maintaining the gardens. The gardening program provides clients tools and practice in taking care of, nourishing and being responsible for living things, whether it be vegetables, their families or themselves.
