As spring approaches, I am reminded of one of the wonderful veterans I met while I was filming our special
Lidia Celebrates America – Homegrown Heroes, US Navy Veteran Kelly Carlisle.
She founded an urban garden called Acta Non Verba: Youth Urban Farm Project, a non-profit urban farm that focuses on serving at-risk youth from kindergarten to 8th grade. She is working to create a healthier environment for the children who live near her home in East Oakland, California.
I am sure she is looking forward to another great year of growing fruits and vegetables with the children of her community.
