25 Programs Bringing Veterans Into AgricultureJune 29, 2018 | :
by Danielle Nierenberg
In honor of the Fourth of July, Food Tank is celebrating military veterans by highlighting 25 organizations around the United States that help veterans transition to healthy, meaningful civilian lives in agriculture.
By providing a roadmap to a career in farming, these companies, NGOs, and universities are helping veterans translate their skills and discipline from the military to the equally important mission of producing the nation’s food supply. These organizations provide veterans with job and skills training, connection to financial and technical resources, and assistance in the difficult task of acquiring land. They also help participants heal from wounds of all kinds and to overcome the stigma, mistreatment, and misunderstanding that military veterans often face.
