The nonprofit Acacia Network and tenants of its residential treatment program for men recovering from addiction, BASICS, celebrated Earth Day, April 21, by cultivating a “Healing Garden.”

The men, joined by volunteers, planted flowers, pulled weeds, added soil and mulch and other activities at the program’s Terrace Garden.
