The National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) is now accepting applications from military veterans who want to attend our week-long Armed to Farm (ATF) Training. ATF allows veterans and their spouses to experience sustainable, profitable small-scale farming enterprises and explore agriculture as a viable career.
Armed to Farm will take place June 12-16, 2017, in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
Participants will attend classroom sessions on the University of Arkansas campus. Several local farms will provide hands-on learning experiences. The event is free for those chosen to attend; lodging, transportation to local farms, and most meals will be provided. Participants must pay their own travel costs to and from the event.
The deadline to apply is April 28, 2017.
