"Meet me at the barn dance tonight"! Interview with Chris Ritthaler, National Veteran Outreach Coordinator, Farmer Veteran Coalition, Davis, CA. By Willi Paul. Supported by Permaculture Exchange

[W] "Are GMO and organic foods hot issues there? How are you “securing a safe and healthy food supply for all?”
[C] Those are definitely hot issues among many of our veteran farmers, and most of our veterans that
FVC has assisted or had contact with implement some sort of organic or sustainable practices in
their operations. We have very few vets doing "traditional" agriculture. That being said we support
all types of agricultural endeavors that potential veteran farmers may want to pursue, as our mission
is to assist the careers of veterans in agriculture as a whole."
