A dream that started two years to benefit homeless and disabled veterans became a reality Friday with the ground breaking of a special garden in the Duffyfield community.

About 70 people watched the dedication of the Veterans Employment Base Camp and Organic Garden at a ceremony between Stanley White Recreation Center and Henderson Park.

Lovay Wallace-Singleton, a 20 year air traffic controller for the U.S. Navy and a disabled veteran, presented the proposal of the veterans garden to aldermen this past summer and everyone at the ceremony said it was her persistence and dedication that turned the idea into reality.

Singleton told those gathered that the garden would not only impact the lives of homeless and disable veterans but all Craven County citizens.

The purpose of the Veterans Employment Base Camp and Organic Garden, Singleton said before the dedication, will be to decrease the veteran homeless population in Craven County, the quality of life for disabled veterans and to increase organic produce in the county.

Thanks for stopping by. My name is Lovay Wallace-Singleton. Come and join Veterans Employment Base Camp and Organic Garden. Volunteer, Donate, Purchase the produce and Have a look around our website and get to know us. If you want to drop us a line, ask a question or volunteer then you can always leave a note in the guestbook.
