Growing Veterans operates three farms in the PNW -Auburn, Lynden and Mount Vernon. We are USDA Certified, carry the Home Grown by Heroes label, and practice sustainable agriculture. We engage veterans looking at agriculture as a viable career option, teaching them valuable skills and helping connect them to resources when they are ready to farm on their own. For other veterans, we are a place for them to engage with other veterans who have shared life experiences. We provide peer support through a unique model that addresses PTSD and suicide prevention - we call it 'dirt therapy.'
Growing Veterans is certified Homegrown by Heroes - awarded to farms that are Veteran-owned and recognized by the USDA.
Mission: To empower military veterans to grow food, communities, and each other.
