Armed to Urban Farm in Memphis Accepting Applications

The National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) and the United States Botanic Garden (USBG) are offering a unique hybrid model of their popular Armed to Urban Farm veterans’ urban agriculture training in Memphis, Tennessee, in October. The free training will be a hybrid of several online sessions via Zoom in early October and in-person farm tours in Memphis from October 17-19, 2022. Participants will learn about whole-farm planning, farm financial planning, urban crop production, urban soils, marketing, and more. Participants will gain a strong foundation in the basic principles of operating a sustainable farming enterprise. In addition, attendees will join a nationwide network of supportive farmer-veterans and agricultural advisors. Online applications are due by September 2, 2022.
