Apply to Attend Armed to Farm Training in New Mexico
The National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) is partnering with Holistic Management International (HMI) to bring its Armed to Farm (ATF) training to the Southwest. Veterans who want to attend the week-long training in Albuquerque, New Mexico, can apply online until February 11, 2022. This training is for veterans in the Southwest, with preference given to those in New Mexico. The number of participants will be limited. The ATF training, scheduled for March 28-April 1, 2022, in Albuquerque allows veterans and their spouses to experience sustainable, profitable small-scale farming enterprises and explore career opportunities in agriculture. At ATF, participants learn about business planning, budgeting, recordkeeping, marketing, USDA programs, livestock production, fruit and vegetable production, and more. Participants gain a strong foundation in the basic principles of operating a sustainable farm.
