The National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) and the United States Botanic Garden (USBG) are offering a unique hybrid model of their popular veterans’ urban agriculture training in Memphis, Tennessee, this fall.

Armed to Urban Farm gives military veterans an opportunity to see sustainable, profitable small-scale farming enterprises and learn about urban farming as a career. Armed to Urban Farm will be a hybrid of online sessions via Zoom and three days of in-person farm tours in Memphis. Participants must commit to attending both the virtual and in-person sessions.

This hybrid Armed to Urban Farm will combine engaging online classroom sessions with in-person farm tours and hands-on activities. Participants will learn about whole-farm planning, farm financial planning, urban crop production, urban soils, marketing, and more. Participants will gain a strong foundation in the basic principles of operating a sustainable farming enterprise. In addition, attendees will join a nationwide network of supportive farmer-veterans and agricultural advisors.
