Veterans Farm Project was created to give women veterans the experience of nature through horticulture programs. We aim to maximize a veteran’s physical, psychological, and social strength as well as enhance general health and well-being. Participants can access all 6 acres of the property and take part in any activity that brings them joy or challenges their skills and knowledge. The farm is accessible to those with physical disabilities or challenges and there are specific areas that aid in helping mental health injuries. Some of the programs offered at the farm include farm stands, workshops, archery, yoga, reike, and more.
Our alumni are welcome to take advantage of free refresher stays anytime to reconnect, regroup, and reground with staff and peers. The Refresher Weekend Program participants are encouraged to attend large group activities and share their stories as a way of giving back.
