When active duty is over and it’s time to return to civilization, this thought comes to mind for a Retired Army Colonel in Kansas. Cathy Isom tells us about a veteran’s vision for helping others become farmers. That’s coming up on this Land of Ours.
From: The S.A.V.E. Farm.org
2.3 million veterans and transitioning service-members are looking for a meaningful way to live life. A high percentage of them indicate an interest in farming. Therefore, a tremendous opportunity exists.
To bridge the gap, a pathway to farming for our veterans and service-members is much needed.
Upon completion of training, transitioning service members and veterans will be matched with mentor farmers with the potential to work on, manage or own a farm.
