New Generation Of Farmers
If you have a passion for gardening or farming than you know the healing power they can yield. I call gardening my therapy and for very good reason, troubles seem to disappear while I am working and tending to my plants. It’s no wonder then that the Farmer-Veteran Coalition is such a success. The Coalition works to connect returning veterans with employment, training, and a chance to “heal” while working on America’s farms. Many war veterans find themselves suffering from post traumatic stress and feel unable to connect with their lives back home away from the war zone. That’s where the Farmer-Veteran Coalition steps in. A large percentage of American veterans were raised in rural communities, and for them farms offer a more comfortable and less stressful setting than an office or factory. Overcoming the experiences of wartime can often seem to take a lifetime. Thankfully for many veterans returning home the Farmer-Veteran Coalition is there ready to help them receive the training, support, and healing they need in order to reconnect with themselves and the world around them.
