Head to the Eastern end of Columbia's Business Loop 70 and you'll find Patriot Place. The Columbia Housing Authority-owned apartments house U.S. veterans who have struggled to maintain their housing. At the back of the property lies a garden.
Steve Long and veteran Herb Hepler talk about the history and importance of gardening. Long is a Veterans Administration social worker based at Patriot Place, a Columbia apartment complex that houses veterans. Hepler is one of those veterans.
