Hives Healing PTSD Vets

On Thursday, October 13, more than 20 area Home Depot associates will partner with Arizona Heroes to Hometowns to build storage for bee hives as part of a new program. Hives Healing Heroes aims to help veterans with PTSD and other injuries through beekeeping. Beekeeping and similar hobbies can help veterans develop coping mechanisms. 

Hives Healing Heroes will pair veterans with mentors who will help them set up their hives and care for bees. Veterans can set them up on their property or utilize space at a community garden. 

This local volunteer project is part of the company's annual Celebration of Service campaign, a nationwide effort led by Team Depot, The Home Depot's associate-led volunteer force, to give back to veterans between September 1 and Veterans Day. In addition to Team Depot's efforts, The Home Depot Foundation is pledging to grow its commitment to veteran-related causes to a quarter of a billion dollars by 2020. 

Throughout the campaign Team Depot is inviting consumers to 'celebrate service' on social media. For each social media action The Home Depot Foundation will donate $1, up to $500,000, between September 1 and Veterans Day to organizations that help veterans including: Meals on Wheels America, Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, Student Veterans of America, Team Rubicon and Volunteers of America.

On Twitter and Instagram
People can celebrate service by sharing a photo of giving back in their own communities or honoring a service member on Twitter and Instagram, and use the hashtag #ServiceSelfie. For each #ServiceSelfie shared during Celebration of Service, The Home Depot Foundation will donate $1 toward the $500,000 goal.

The Garden Guy: Planting desert wild flowers 

Around this time of year, the nights are cool and the days are warm and that means it's time to seed our homes with desert wildflowers. They survive in our soils with little water. Once established, a lot of desert wildflowers reseed themselves readily and are a great way to add spring and fall colors with little or no work. There are approximately 90 species of desert wildflowers, a lot of which are used for attracting birds and butterflies. They also attract a lot of beneficial insects that will help with pollination and pest control, which keeps with my philosophy of staying organic. Throwing wildflowers into parts of your yard that feel empty, garden areas, or in your front yard. They will grow virtually anywhere. Things to consider when planting wildflowers are finding an area with full sun, prepare your soil by loosening the soil to approximately 6-8 inches and then rake the soil smooth, removing the dirt clods. Once the soil is loose, mix your seeds with a little sand start to cast the seeds onto the surface of the soil. Rake the seeds into the soil, making sure these seeds are covered with 1/8 to ¼ inch of soil. Start watering the seeds 3 to 4 times weekly until the seeds surface, then cut back the water to 1 time per week. You may need to cover your wildflowers with netting to keep the birds off until they are established. Some wildflowers to consider are desert marigolds, California poppies, gaillardia, penstemon, and Shirley poppies
