Folks in Broken Arrow turned a new leaf on Saturday and they got a discount for doing it.  A New Leaf which is a non-profit dedicated to helping the disabled hosted Gardenfest.  From 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. those with a green thumb got to save 10% on all gardening purchases.

The executive director of A New Leaf tells The News On 6 they also teach disabled people how to tenderly care for plants, which is therapeutic.

Kim Falcon says A New Leaf provides jobs and independence, as well as great, healthy plants for everyone.

"The flowers exist because we actually teach and train adults with disabilities. We use horticulture therapy," said Falcon.
