AGRICULTURAL PROGRAMS

Connecting Veterans to Farms for Therapeutic Activity
Through the creation of therapy farms, workshops, and a veteran farmer community, veterans from all over can join a farm to participate in gardening, farming, ranching, and many other activities.
At-Ease also offers mini-grants for veteran-owned farms to become therapy farms in order to get more veterans involved in outdoor therapy.
