Crystal and Robert Timmons

Landscape & Nursery Management Class Of '18

After Robert & Crystal graduated, they knew they wanted to support their local community and veteran family. They founded the Veteran Garden Project of St. Augustine, a non-profit to promote post-military healing and to help veterans transition after their military service. The goal is to share organic gardening and permaculture education to not only support our local community but also our earth and to help find solutions for food insecurity. The organization promotes this mission through the holistic healing of veterans with garden therapy and education. The Veteran Garden Project has installed 9 organic gardens since 2018.
