Long Description: 
Spend time in a garden or on a farm, and you quickly realize the amazing healing powers they have by just being there. Now imagine the power such a place can have when you're immersed in it full time. For children with ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorder), those benefits are exponential. The Center for Discovery, in Sullivan County, NY is a place created for just such children. The farm is at the heart of the project and it's changing lives in a powerful and moving way. In this episode, we visit the farm, meet some of the dedicated staff, and discover the magic this place has on the children who come here.
