Veteran Grown: Urban Farming


This panel discussed farming in an urban setting as one of many unique career paths veterans take after transitioning to civilian life, and introduced the audience to programs that exist to assist veterans who farm. The Library of Congress Veterans History Project collects oral history interviews of panelists who are veterans and work on an urban farm, including beekeepers. The Library will add these veterans’ stories to the project archive and include them in a future online exhibit as part of its “Experiencing War” series. The panel will also highlight the Veterans History Project as both a repository and research resource.
