Book Hour: Field Exercises – How Veterans are Healing through Farming and Outdoor Activities


Many veterans returning from deployment suffer from post traumatic stress syndrome. It is an all-consuming syndrome that can damage the lives of the veterans themselves and the people who love them. The waiting list for treatment at VA centers is long and the ultimate cost to caregivers and the sources of funding is high. However, a new method of helping veterans through gardenia, farming, animal care, and outdoor activities is having outstanding results. Listen to the author explain the surprising reasons why.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
