Twenty-nine military veterans from the Northeast participated in sustainable agriculture training in New Hampshire recently, reported The Keene Sentinel. The Armed to Farm training was presented by the National Center for Appropriate Technology, a national non-profit that has held similar trainings in many other states. Retired service personnel participate in classroom sessions, farm tours, and hands-on activities during the free, week-long training. Participants also enjoy networking and exchanging ideas and information with one another. Similar Armed to Farm trainings will be offered later this year in Arkansas, Montana, and Washington, DC.
