People with disabilities grow in Turkish greenhouse

People with disabilities planted tomato and cucumber seedlings in the greenhouse established in the Erzurum Center for Accessible Life. Family and Social Services Provincial Director Cemil Ilbas said, "It is very beneficial for our disabled citizens to sow with their own hands and follow their growth process, in terms of helping them to be in a better place psychologically." Family and Social Services gifted 732 tomato and salad seedlings to the center for the people with disabilities staying in the center. The disabled residents of the center planted vegetable seedlings in the soil with the help of the employees of the agriculture and forestry directorate. In the event, which was attended by the Provincial Director of Agriculture and Forestry, Osman Akar, and the Provincial Director of Family and Social Services, Cemil Ilbas, disabled citizens were given information about planting and gave water to the seedlings they have planted.

Family and Social Services Provincial Director Cemil Ilbas stated that the event was held due to the 'Week of the Disabled' and said, "We planted 732 tomato and salad seedlings in the greenhouse with our children and special citizens living in the Disabled Living Center. It is very important for our mental world, psychologically, for our special individuals to follow the development process of the plants they planted with their own hands. It is very useful. They grow it with great hope. They can come and look at the plant they planted in the greenhouse the next day and see how it has grown. We also witness that they are happier when they touch the grown salad and tomato when they eat it and when they feel its presence. I find this activity very meaningful for them. To be intertwined with nature is a great way of rehabilitation. It is a natural therapy."
