Sunday Morning Spotlight: Adaptive Works Farm
(FRANKSVILLE) Through ceremonies, salutes and fundraisers there will be many expressions of gratitude on this Veterans Day.
But for a local nurse who's cared for disabled veterans for years there's no better way to thank those who have sacrificed than by providing them with opportunities to improve their quality of life. Greg Grueneberg is a full time nurse at the Zablocki VA Medical Center in Milwaukee, but in his off hours he still finds time to do what he can to help veterans as a co-founder of the Adaptive Works Farm.
Right now, the farm produces micro greens to be sold to local restaurants and distributors in an environment adapted for workers who are physically disabled.
Michael Thomas is a disabled veteran himself and another co-founder of the Adaptive Works Farm. On CBS 58 Sunday Morning, Michael and Greg joined Mike Strehlow at the Franksville farm to discuss how adapted work can be a great opportunity for disabled veterans.
