When I was in the US Army I used to daydream, in the .12 seconds of free
time I was rationed for such activities, that instead of weapons we'd have
shovels, instead of machine guns, a pair of loppers. And instead of playing
war, we would be working orchards.

 

Turns out I wasn't alone- since august of last year 16 veterans have traded
itchy trigger fingers for a green thumbs at VETS_CAFE permaculture
trainings. We want to expand our network and aim for 50 more vets by the end
of this year to go through our program. We've helped 2 veterans start small
permaculture farms and want to add two more farms to the list in the next
year. We've got 3 vets with college credit taking the course and want to up
that to 20.

 

And then we want to train a cadre of vets to do what they asked for- to go
back to the middle east, to Iraq, Afghanistan,? and to be of some service.
I've heard it from more than half the vets I've worked with "WHY ARENT WE
SENDING PERMACULTURE TO AFGHANISTAN?" When they see what we can do they know
immediately that some atonement is possible. After being lied to and used,
they are recognizing a place to make and ethical stand and actually care for
the people.
