We believe in building real business, with real jobs, and driving profits to support the core of our mission. We then leverage profits to fund critical training, housing, and healing needs working with our non-profit partners. This approach allows us to have a self-sustaining ecosystem. Driving donations and fund raising with our non-profit partners then helps us all expand our efforts to create greater impact and move past the "keep the lights on" scenario that plagues so many non-profits.
Examples of where and how we work with our non-profit partners: When a Veteran needs training and advice to start their farm at our Outpost we team with Farmer Veteran Coalition to get them the support they need. We leverage our amazing landscape for Growing Veterans to run healing retreats. We work with Bunker Labs to incubate a new cider business using our crops, or a new farming technology testing on our site. We are working with GreenWave to pull kelp into the farming ecosystem - completing the sea to land vision.
