Vets on the Farm encourages exploration of agricultural and conservation-based education by offering programs and curriculum in partnership with WSU Extension and Spokane Community Colleges. Levels of completion will be available and include course certification up to an Associate’s degree. Additionally, Vets on The Farm facilitates an internship and mentoring program to give our Veterans a chance to “walk the walk.” Again, we bring the resources to help build the community. Some of our education resources include:

Workshops & Farmwalks
Vets on the Farm and partnering agencies offer workshops and farmwalks throughout the year. These events provide our Veterans with an opportunity for learning outside of a traditional classroom and another way to connect with fellow Veterans and individuals interested in agriculture.
