Family Health & Mental Wellness Outreach Program

Veterans Farm Network

VETERANS FARM NETWORK (VFN), is a transformational program to create a living therapeutic, research and development capability to implement a 'Repeatable Horticulture & Agricultural Model' that can be implemented across Canada and managed by small family units consisting of Canadian Armed Forces members and their families as they transition from active duty or be returned to active duty.

There will be a series of campuses of greenhouses nationwide with their own shared services and logistics capabilties feeding in to a new supply chain of established buyers. It is the hope that all elements will be run, in whole or in part, by CAF members with mental health challenges and their families fully supported by educators, doctors, nurses, local growers and military resources and families both formal and informal.

The VFN is still in its planning stages and will be a highlite announcement of FORCES & FAMILIES' 10th anniversary in 2017 as part of its continuing 'Family Health and Mental Wellness Outreach Program'.

Please follow us for ongoing updates in 2017.
