Program prepares veterans to farm
To meet Spokane County’s need for farmers to replace its aging farmers, the Spokane County Conservation District (SCCD) is beginning a project to connect veterans with jobs in farming.
It’s in sync with the district’s responsibilities for forest management, environmental education, soil science, small-acreage farming, production agriculture and water resources programs to promote wise use of natural resources to protect them for the future.
Its newest program, which will launch in November, is Operation New Mission: Veterans on the Farm.
