Grow America Farm Corps
A resettlement program for New Americans; Cultivating Community, Employment, and Well-being
About the Program
The Grow America Farm Corps is an innovative initiative designed to revitalize the agricultural sector while supporting the integration and well-being of new Americans. Initially focused in Vermont, this program uniquely addresses the farm labor shortage by fostering a dynamic collaboration among farmers, new Americans, veterans, government entities, non-profit organizations, community groups, and private sector partners. Its aim is to create sustainable solutions that can potentially be replicated in other regions, starting with a strong foundation in Vermont’s rich agricultural landscape.
The Grow America Farm Corps represents a forward-thinking solution to contemporary challenges, rooted in community collaboration and mutual growth.
Emphasizing the importance of community, the program offers cultural orientation, language support, and a robust support network encompassing healthcare and mental health services.
The synergy between various stakeholders, including local and state governments, non-profits, and community groups, ensures a well-rounded and effective program design and implementation. This collaborative approach not only addresses labor shortages but also enriches the cultural fabric, aiming to create a more inclusive, productive, and interconnected community.
