We are building the Citadel, a bastion of holistic practices and land-based living where veterans can be immersed in a wealth of resources dedicated to healing. This will be an off-grid, self-sustainable working farm. HV programs are based in the Learn-Do-Teach method, where the student becomes professor in a short period of time. Within these programs, veterans will learn: green building, permaculture and food-foresting, emotional intelligence, mindfulness, and other self-care practices. The Citadel will be a place from where we create, teach, and practice a lifestyle that promotes thriving people, families, communities and ecosystems.
