Since 1998, Angelic Organics Learning Center has helped build sustainable local food and farm systems through experiential education and training programs in partnership with rural and urban people. This grant will fund the first expansion of Angelic Organics’ service model specifically to U.S. veterans. The goal of the Veteran Beginning Farmer project is to leverage the resources of the most innovative farmer-led farmer training programs in northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin for the benefit of veterans. Veterans will have the opportunity to learn about farming, to create a business plan to launch their farm businesses, and to gain access to capital and financial training.
