Armed to Farm will take place July 25-29, 2022, in Boone, North Carolina. This training is for veterans in the Southeast, with preference given to those in North Carolina. Participants will attend classroom sessions on the Appalachian State University campus and travel to local farms for hands-on learning experiences. Veterans who want to attend the free, week-long training can apply online until June 10, 2022. Armed to Farm gives veterans and their spouses the opportunity to experience sustainable, profitable small-scale farming enterprises and explore career opportunities in agriculture.
