September is National Recovery Month. While the term “recovery” can be applied to getting better or improving with regard to a wide range of conditions, it is most commonly associated with overcoming addiction to alcohol and other drugs. In this context, recovery is generally thought of as becoming abstinent from these substances. However, the process of recovery goes far beyond abstinence.

Growing and and Recovery go hand in hand. Growing our minds, Growing in our experiences and sharing. The participants of the Dara Project in Kildare are growing their own and preparing for the Autumn Harvest. Vine tomatoes, Lettuce, vegetables in the poly tunnel, being nurtured and cared for. Where there is Growth their is resilience and hope and nourishment.
