Work has begun on a special community garden for disabled veterans in San Bernardino.

The Veterans Exploration Garden will give disabled vets the opportunity to organize and maintain a community garden.

Organizers say gardening is a therapeutic way to improve a person's mental and physical health.

Veterans will also have the opportunity to work with kids in developing the garden.

The Disabled American Veterans group will cover the costs of up-keep.
