)-- Onsite Office Will Support Live Streaming Agricultural Trainings for Veterans.
"Veterans Healing Farm has been awarded a grant of $42,000 by the Community Foundation of Henderson County," John Mahshie, Veterans Healing Farm (VHF) executive director, said today.
According to Mahshie, the grant has been used to purchase an onsite mobile office building for the farm. “Over the last five years, VHF has steadily increased farm production, established a produce donation program at the Asheville VA Hospital, built a solar-powered community center, and launched an agricultural training program for veterans,” Mahshie said. “Thanks to this grant from the Community Foundation of Henderson County, VHF will soon have increased onsite administrative capacity to support our volunteers and events. On site internet access will help VHF reach veterans who otherwise would not be able to attend by providing them with live streamed boot camps and workshops. We are grateful to the Community Foundation for the funds to expand our important work of supporting veterans.”
Veterans Healing Farm (VHF) was founded in 2014 and serves veterans and their caregivers in Hendersonville County and beyond by providing innovative educational experiences, developing a national farm micro-community model, and donating flower bouquets and nutritious produce to veterans at VA Hospitals. Kaye Youngblood is president of the VHF Board of Directors.
Community Foundation of Henderson County, founded in 1982, supports charitable programs in the greater Henderson County area.
