NY Veterans in Agriculture Summit

November 6, 2014


About the Veterans in Ag Summit
The Veterans Summit will offer an opportunity to meet others interested in supporting veterans getting into agriculture; better understand the support services available to veterans and those interested in agriculture; and design programs and pathways to help veterans enter agriculture.

About the Organizers
The Summit is presented by a diverse team of collaborators:
  •  Cornell Small Farms Program
  •  NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets
  •  Division of Veterans Affairs
  •  Farmer Veteran Coalition
  •  New York Farm Viability Institute 
  •  National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT)
  •  Cornell Cooperative Extension: Jefferson, Monroe & Erie Counties

Agenda

The day will begin with 'lightning' introductions from organizations in NY that serve farmer veterans.

Featured speaker Jamie Critelli will describe the rewards of entering farming after serving in the military. Critelli will touch on the unique skill sets of veterans that compliment farming, highlight the challenges of reintegration into communities and outline basic strategies to improve support of veterans who want to start farming.

Following the morning presentations, attendees will be invited to participate in two of four 'working groups' to engage in facilitated discussion around the following topics:
  •  Veterans Starting Farms 
  •  Veterans Employed on Farms
  •  Communication and Outreach Strategies to reach NY Veterans
  •  Training for Service Providers
These working group discussions will build the foundation for generating a NYS Work Plan for Veterans in Agriculture and a NY Veterans in Agriculture Task Force. 

Who Should Attend? 
If you live in New York State and you...
  •  Are a veteran who is farming in NY and want to help other veterans to do the same
  •  Are a veteran who wants to farm or work in agriculture
  •  Currently work with veterans who are interested in starting farms or working in agriculture
  •  Want to employ veterans in your agriculture business

The meeting is FREE and lunch  will be provided.
