Mission Statement

To empower military veterans to grow food, communities, and each other.

We combine veteran reintegration with sustainable agriculture- creating a holistic solution to fighting the multitude of issues the veteran population faces and simultaneously empowering our fellow vets to strengthen the incredibly important sustainable agriculture movement.

Description

Besides being a place where vets can come to feel normal again, we try to harness the skills, energy and passions of military veterans to support and strengthen the sustainable agriculture movement. It’s no secret the subsidized food system is harmful to watersheds and all life that depends on them, creates bad tasting and nutrition lacking food, and is greatly reducing the diversity of crops that this planet has to offer. We believe that our nation’s military veterans are key to changing this system, literally from the ground up. By acting as positive leaders in the community, we have the potential to bridge all sides of the political/social/economic divide and strengthen the support of local and regional food systems that are sustainable for our environment, support local economies and increase the health and well being of our community members.
