Pamela Hess Talks 100 Entrepreneurs about Arcadia's Veteran Farming Programs
Pamela Hess, the Executive Director of Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food and Agriculture, joined 100 Entrepreneurs to talk about the Arcadia farms, which were farmed by George Washington, after he retired from the military. She also talked about their Veteran Farming Programs, including a full-time, one year program and a Reserves-like program, one weekend a month and 2 weeks during a year. Veterans and their spouses learn all aspects of food production, farming strategies, finance, taking food to market and more. Arcadia provides a mobile market to sell their healthy food in lower income neighborhoods in the DC area at lower prices.
Pam describes the programs as well as how the participants have turned their experience into a career in farming. The Veteran Farming Programs can help veterans to learn how to run large acreage farms, specialty farms, and backyard farms. They even offer a portion of their farm to veterans who have attended the program to build a business. Arcadia is now taking applications for the program. Applications are available at http://arcadiafood.org.
