America needs a million new farmers. Veterans want the job.

“Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep. I am in a thousand winds that blow. I am the softly falling snow. I am the gentle showers of rain. I am the fields of ripening grain. I am in the morning hush; I am in the graceful rush. Of beautiful birds in circling flight, I am the starshine of the night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there. I do not die.”
Mary Frye, Memorial Day 1932

While enjoying this holiday, please take a moment to remember and honor our veterans’ sacrifice and prepare to help those returning vets through what may be their most difficult mission yet…coming home. Here’s one organization that holds special meaning for me… Farmer Veteran Coalition

Ground Operations – from battlefields to farmfields

Watch Growing a Greener World TV’s episode on Veteran Farmers
