When Zachary Brown first started coming to Center for Family Support, which is a facility for adults with developmental disabilities, he had a lot of trouble assimilating. His low-functioning autism made it increasingly difficult for him to get along with the others, and he was often agitated and antisocial.
That is, until he met Kirkpatrick Clemenson. Clemenson, originally from Jamaica, has always loved gardening. He has a garden in his fire escape, and says that “gardening is in his blood.” As he randomly brought some of the plants to the center, Brown took an interest in them.
