Also, please consider joining the New York State Veterans in Agriculture Network Listserve:
What is this Listserve?
Through a grant from the USDA’s Beginning Farmer and Rancher Program the Cornell Small Farms Program initiated a statewide service provider network for organizations to support agriculture training for veterans. In continuing this work, we plan to implement multiple education strategies to engage and train military veterans who want to farm. We will be using this listserve to communicate with you as we begin to implement initiatives across the state. In turn, we hope you will use this as a tool to let others in the state know about events and training opportunities or discuss issues which would be relevant to veterans in agriculture.
Who’s Part of the Network?
This listserve is for New York state veterans who are interested in farming or are already farming and the service providers who work with them. We hope that this email list will serve as a valuable networking tool for this audience. Feel free to invite other people you know in the state who should be part of this network by having them follow the following instructions:
