Our Story

We are a group of veterans who found ourselves transitioning from the Canadian Armed Forces and no access to environmental rehabilitation type programs. We decided to take action and help other veterans gain access to the health benefits of being in nature.

We have created The Veteran Farm Project to give all veterans the experience of nature through horticulture programs. We aim to maximize a veteran’s physical, psychological and social strength and enhance general health and well-being.

Participants can access all 6 acres of the property and take part in any activity that brings them joy or challenges their skills and knowledge.

The farm is accessible to those with physical disabilities or challenges and there are specific areas that aid in helping with mental health injuries.

As a group of female veterans we understand the importance of a safe, enriched space where women can come together and be comfortable to share their stories and challenges. We will be providing programs that are specifically geared towards women veterans and their specific needs.

Our hope is this project will continue to grow and all veterans who wish to gain experiences in nature will have access. As a social enterprise all profits from the Veteran Farm Stand will return back to the project so we can continue to support all veterans and ensure no veteran or their families live with food insecurity.
