Permalink NCAT Accepting Applications for Armed to Farm in Arkansas

The National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) is accepting applications for its week-long Armed to Farm (ATF) training in Fayetteville, Arkansas, to be held October 1-5, 2018. ATF allows military veterans and their spouses to experience sustainable, profitable small-scale farming enterprises and explore agriculture as a viable career, through farm tours, hands-on experience, and interactive classroom instruction. Participants learn about business planning, budgeting, recordkeeping, marketing, livestock production, fruit and vegetable production, and more. In addition, attendees gain a network of supportive farmer-veterans and agricultural advisors. The event is free for those chosen to attend; lodging at the retreat center, transportation to local farms, and most meals will be provided. Participants must pay their own travel costs to and from the event. Applications are due by August 10, 2018.
