About GROWING VETERANS

Location:

6458 MARTIN PL, LYNDEN, WA 98264, US

Mission Statement

"We empower veterans to cultivate purpose and belonging by growing food, community and each other."

Description

Growing Veterans was founded by a combat wounded USMC veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan, Christopher Brown, and a former mental health counselor turned farmer, Christina Wolf. Together, they agreed using the farm as the catalyst for human connection and veteran reintegration could have a powerful impact on the health and well being of not only vets returning home, but the world...
For Veterans: We are a place you can find purpose & camaraderie again.We serve as a professional stepping stone, giving vets an opportunity to build their resume and their individual skill sets. Opportunities for vets to get involved include employment, volunteerism, internships, and work-study.

For Civilian Allies:
We show you how to truly live out the phrase: "Thank you for your service". We provide a means for veterans and the community to work alongside each other. By sowing seeds in the fields together, we also sow lasting friendships and help bridge the gap between the military veteran and civilian populations.
