SANTA CRUZ VETERANS ALLIANCE
At SCVA, we not only cultivate for clean, consistent, medical grade cannabis, we also practice horticultural therapy. The calming influence of a plant-rich environment has been transformed into a therapeutic tool.
Horticulture Therapy was historically used with servicemen returning from World War I and II as an opportunity for healing, stress reduction, exercise, and learning. Bringing a veteran into the cannabis garden teaches them a new skill, gives them community, allows them to know their medicine, and provides a peaceful environment.
Veteran farmers bring the skills they learned in the military to our gardens. Attention to detail, problem solving, and integrity are just a few of those skills and are the basis for the SCVA motto, Grown with Honor.
