The National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) is bringing its week-long Armed to Farm sustainable agriculture training for military veterans to New Hampshire June 11–15, 2018. Armed to Farm combines engaging classroom sessions with farm tours and hands-on activities. Participants learn about business planning, budgeting, recordkeeping, marketing, livestock production, vegetable production, and more. Participants gain a strong foundation in the basic principles of operating a sustainable farming enterprise. In addition, Armed to Farm attendees join a nationwide network of supportive farmer-veterans and agricultural advisors. The program is available to military veterans in the Northeast who are interested in starting a farm or who have recently begun farming (less than 10 years). Spouses and farming partners are also invited to apply. The event is free for those chosen to attend; lodging, transportation to local farms, and most meals will be provided. Applications are due by April 27, 2018.
