ITHACA, N.Y. — The Cornell Small Farms Program team is continuing to grow, and we are hiring! We are excited to share that the application is now open for our newest team member, Farmer Veteran Program Assistant.
Through the efforts of the Farm Ops project to support military veterans entering into farming as a career, our farmer audience has grown to include many farmer veterans. We aim to create new pathways for farm training and educational resources that address the specific needs of veterans and complement existing, established resources.
The Farmer Veteran Program Assistant will play a key role in helping enhance the resources and training available to military veterans interested in farming. This will include teaming with established veterans groups to create pathways that link veterans to broad agricultural support. While our primary efforts will target veterans (service members who have already been discharged), we will extend the resources we develop to those on active duty, who want to farm after their service commitment.
We are currently welcoming applications and we look forward to meeting you!
If you have any further questions, contact Nicole Waters, Project Coordinator for the Cornell Small Farms Program and the Equitable Farm Futures Initiative.
