Hope Farms Veteran Farmer Training and Apprenticeship Programs

Daniel.jpgOur resident, professional farm team and educators train U.S. military veterans as professional urban farmers and incubate their new farm businesses. Hope Farmer trainees receive a 2,000-hour formal curriculum of horticulture, financial literacy, accounting, banking and business planning to empower their efforts to establish new enterprises, incubated by our Hope Farms Coop, which promotes and distributes their products. We have three training tracks available exclusively to veterans that offer the dynamic opportunity to gain deep experience and diverse skills in sustainable agriculture, while learning the fundamentals of small business management in preparation for a future career in agriculture. Working directly with the Chief Agriculture Officer, Farm Manager and Farm educators, trainees are involved in all aspects of the farm, including: planting and maintenance of sustainable and organic vegetable production; community engagement and education; direct marketing and sales; and helping to establish a sustainable, profitable urban farming model.
