    Growing A Greener World [#807H] Hope for Heroes: The Farmer Veteran Coalition (Davis, CA) The Farmer Veteran Coalition Ask almost any returning war veteran and they'll tell you that the hardest part of the war is not going, it's coming home.

The Farmer Veteran Coalition is one such organization with a simple mission: to mobilize veterans to feed America by cultivating a new generation of farmers and food leaders.
