Veterans to Farmers by Anna C. Stull and Christian A. Mussett

Veterans to Farmers | Anna C. Stull & Christian A. Mussett from Focus Forward Films on Vimeo.

As a recently retired Iraq War veteran, I understand the challenges of finding employment after military service. Veterans to Farmers is an amazing program that trains vets in organic greenhouse farming. Not only does this provide meaningful employment, but it strengthens our communities, protects the environment and bolsters our economy by providing local, clean, and traceable fresh food.
