he Veterans Exploration Garden (VEG) which broke ground in
January this year and sits on roughly a quarter-acre of city land
at Speicher Park in San Bernardino, has been a place where vet-
erans socialize and reintegrate back into society. The brainchild of
Richard Valdez, member of the Disabled American Veterans (DAV),
San Bernardino Chapter 12, the VEG will serve to bring together dis-
abled veterans and provide the opportunity for them to learn multiple
aspects of organizing, planting, and maintaining a community garden
as a therapeutic approach in improving an individual’s mental and/or
“Such a garden is unprecedented in the city,” said Valdez, who added
that it is a community garden where veterans will work together, rather
than in separate plots. “Our goal is to bring awareness to veterans and
let the veterans have an opportunity to give back to the community and
to interface with the community.”
“If it was not for the persistence of Richard and Joseph (Mena), this
(VEG) would never have come about,” said Jim Corrales, veteran who
has and continues to provide assistance to the project. “This (garden)
is very, very long overdue.”
Valdez’s and Mena’s efforts focused on obtaining funding, materials
and collaboration with the city of San Bernardino, and those efforts were
realized when, in January, San Bernardino City Council approved a
Memorandum of Understanding between the Disabled American Vet-
erans (DAV), San Bernardino Chapter 12, and the city of San
Bernardino and San Bernardino Parks, Recreation and Community
Services Department to establish and maintain a VEG for veterans to
“This gives veterans the ability to get involved hands on, with the
planting of plants, trees and vegetables,” Corrales said. When the pro-
duce is ripened, they will be sold to the community and monies earned
will go toward the maintenance of the VEG.
Corrales could not commend volunteers from the city of San
Bernardino and the Home Depot (which donated a $15,000 grant toward
construction of the VEG) enough, describing them as “fantastic” and
According to Corrales, the planters are at a height such that a disabled
veteran in a wheelchair is comfortably able to lean over to plant and
The VEG will be operated by the Disabled American Veterans, San
Bernardino Chapter 12, veterans, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.
to 6 p.m., and on select Saturdays and Sundays for specialized program-
The program will have three developmental phases aimed at wellness
through botanical/agriculture cultivation, training in sustainable agri-
culture; and embracing the community through sharing and teaching
gardening methods. The development and maintenance of the VEG will
provide veterans an opportunity to offer hands-on training and work-
shops to youth and their families.
Currently the DAV Chapter 12 is competing against three other non-
profits in the country for a $25,000 prize from the Home Depot Foun-
