The Semper Fi Fund is offering assistance for qualified wounded veterans to attend the Veterans Sustainability Agriculture Training (VSAT) program at Archi's Acres in Southern California as part of our Education and Career Transition Assistance program.
Archi's Acres is a small-scale organic farm in North County, San Diego, established in 2007 by a decorated Marine Sergeant Colin and his wife Karen. Colin and Karen developed Archi's Acres into a working, hydroponic, organic farm. Archi's Acres is a pro-American, pro-Veteran company that utilizes innovative growing techniques to produce the highest quality, nutritious, great tasting, locally grown, organic food. The company's goal is to augment and accelerate the agricultural revolution across America, in partnership with our military Veterans.
Archi's Acres created the program, Veterans Sustainability Agriculture Training (VSAT) to offer our combat veterans meaningful employment opportunities in the high growth industry
of sustainable crop production. Their philosophy is to call up and redirect our Veteran's attributes of leadership, tenaciousness, adaptability, as well as willingness to take on severe challenges, self-knowledge and appetite for the continual improvement.
The Semper Fi Fund is proud to support our Veterans as they continue to recovery and transition back into their communities!
