America Needs a Million New Farmers. Veterans Want the Job.
Raising $25K in 45 Days! Join the Mission. Share the Vision. www.igg.me/at/groundoperations www.groundoperations.net
Our warriors are coming home from battle. They face a daunting transition back to civilian life, marked by unemployment, prescription drug addiction and astronomical suicide rates. They need a new mission. Simultaneously, we are losing half of American farmers to retirement and the USDA is calling for one million new farmers to fill the gap. Agriculture's problem is the veterans' solution.
"Ground Operations: Battlefields to Farmfields" champions combat vets who are rebuilding their own lives as organic farmers & ranchers and revitalizing their communities with access to local, affordable, fresh, healthy food. These heroes blow the lid off stereotypes and you'll be rooting for them all the way to your farmers market.
GROUND OPERATIONS is a call to action featuring a documentary film, a companion E-book and a national tour. We invite everyone interested to join and share our vision to strengthen the network of combat veterans transitioning into sustainable agriculture; and to help increase the resources necessary for them to create healthy new lives for themselves and food security for communities across America. Join the mission to share the vision.
