Thank you for helping America's veterans help themselves!

AUV’s mission is different, innovative, and holistic:

         We hire and train unemployed post 9/11 vets to help them help themselves.


At The Roots & Sprouts Farmstead we meet Vets where you are. You get training to learn new skills to match your interests and goals. Our Programs provide the experience to grow the skills you have as you learn new concepts and techniques. You are a part of The Farmstead Community, earning paychecks for your work:  construction, forestry, hospitality, organic farming, and animal care. The Farmstead’s rural setting is safe, beautiful, restorative and healthy – clean air, clean water and blue sky.

For YOU our highly valued citizens: New directions, new challenges and new choices.


Your contribution helps make the Farmstead possible.

Show your gratitude today.  Show you care with a generous Donation.

Thank you.
