Growing Veterans

“Our home base farm is in Lynden, WA. Situated in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, between the Cascade Mountain Range and the Puget Sound, our certified organic farm serves as the cornerstone for Growing Veterans. This is where our peer-support and community engagement ethos come to life. We invite folks from all over the community to come and join us, because it’s impossible for a veteran to fully come home without being an active member of their community again. Vets are welcomed home, stereotypes are broken, and friendships are formed.

We also have an outpost farm on Greenbank Whidbey Island, WA located just 20 minutes from NAS Whidbey.”
