Growing Healthy Veterans Recognition of Service at Illinois State Fair.
It is always rewarding when the efforts of Growing Healthy Veterans and our volunteers, with government, community, and donor support, receive recognition.
Growing Healthy Veterans graciously accepted the recognition of service to veterans during the Illinois State Fair Veterans and Gold Star Families Day.
Our horticultural training and employment opportunities in sustainable agriculture for veterans were prominent Meet the Farmer: Growing Healthy Veterans at Illinois Department of Agriculture Tent topics.
The recognition and Illinois Lieutenant Governor Juliana Stratton’s interest in supporting Growing Healthy Veterans and visiting our North Chicago Community Garden are much appreciated.
