FARM’s goal is to provide immediate assistance for veterans relative to their re-integration into society after service with a goal of providing therapeutic rehabilitation via several avenues of approach.
These avenues include, but are not limited to, agricultural stewardship, agrarianism, animal husbandry, recreational activities and employment opportunities with an emphasis on promoting the transference and application of veterans’ leadership skills and work ethic into civilian life through farm life.
FARM has developed and is building an educational farm park in downtown Dallas near the Farmers Market to show the importance of healthy foods and the impact they can have on the community. The educational farm park will also be a place to provide meaningful work for veterans by allowing them to work and to teach.
OUR WORK: GroundFloor invested $165k in seed funding and mentoring that focused on developing a comprehensive plan to launch the educational urban farm park in Downtown Dallas. Mentoring from a management consulting expert helped to develop a comprehensive strategic business plan for the construction of the farm park. Through FARM’s participation in 2016’s OneUp the Vote, they received an additional $8,500 for winning a weekly prize.Visit Farmers Assisting Returning Military (FARM) online!
