TALMAR, a horticultural therapy center, invites eligible veterans to apply for their VA FARMS agricultural training program that will launch its fourth cohort in 2022.

The program, an initiative of the Veterans Health Administration’s Office of Rural Health, is a three to six month commitment for veterans at all levels of experience involving a total of 150 hour. Half of those hours will be spent working on the farm and the other half will be spent in group therapy.

Veterans who are honorably discharged from any branch of the U.S. military, are able to receive healthcare treatment through the VA and are physically able to work outdoors for at least two hours are encouraged to apply for the VAFARMS program.
