Join the Mission

Ground Operations is a documentary film and social action campaign that champions the growing network of combat veterans who are transitioning into careers as sustainable farmers, ranchers and artisan food producers. Let’s help them get started and build their resources, so that veterans can create healthy new lives for themselves and delicious food security for communities across America.  Ground Operations screening events feature farm-fresh food, the film, farmer-veteran speakers and a robust conversation about local food and farming.

“There’s nothing like the healing atmosphere of being in the outdoors, working steadily, improving one’s little patch of earth, providing healthful products in a poison-free environment, and interacting with happy customers.  Your video puts it all together in a neat and inspirational package.” - Bob, Vietnam combat vet
