A NY farm solves two problems in one place; 1) training vets to be farmers helps with chronic unemployment, 2) it will raise farmers to produce locally grown vegetation.

"A 19-acre farm near Hudson, New York, is being reimagined as an agricultural training camp for veterans. Plans for the complex, unveiled last month, include eight compact housing units and a communal space designed to respect the character and landscape of an existing farm in the town of Claverack set among the rolling agricultural fields and mountains of the Hudson River Valley.

"Heroic Food Farm is designed by Ennead Architects/Ennead Lab and RAFT Landscape Architecture for Heroic Food, a nonprofit focused on training vets in sustainable farming, agricultural trades, and food entrepreneurship."--Kristin Hohendal, Slate
