The National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) is partnering with United Farmer Veterans of Maine (UFVM) to bring its Armed to Farm (ATF) training to the Northeast. Veterans who want to attend the week-long training August 21-25, 2017, in Bangor, Maine, can apply online by July 12, 2017. ATF 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, livestock production, fruit and vegetable production, and more. Participants gain a strong foundation in the basic principles of operating a sustainable farm. In addition, ATF attendees join a nationwide network of supportive farmer-veterans and agricultural advisors. This training is for veterans in the Northeast, with preference given to those in Maine. The number of participants will be limited.
