The National Center for Appropriate Technology’s (NCAT) Armed to Farm (ATF) program is accepting applications from military veterans to participate in a week-long sustainable agriculture training May 13-17, 2019, in the Crawfordsville, Indiana area. ATF allows veterans and their spouses to experience sustainable, profitable small-scale farming enterprises and explore agriculture as a viable career. ATF’s engaging blend of farm tours, hands-on experience, and interactive classroom instruction gives participants a strong foundation in the basic principles of operating a sustainable farm. The training is free for those chosen to participate. All military veterans, as well as their spouses or farm partners, are welcome to apply. However, veterans located in the Midwest region will receive priority. Applications are due by April 8, 2019.
