Our intent discover an underwriter or donor to purchase The Shepley Farm located at 52 Huffman Rd, Asheville, North Carolina. This USDA designated urban farm was once planned as a veteran based sustainable demonstration and training project. Now that Veterans Helping Veterans of WNC, Inc. has closed its doors, Vets2Vets intends to acquire this property and continue the vision by developing a Veteran Sustainable Business Accelerator. The farm’s grow operation is current being operated by Patchwork Urban Farms and the veteran community center is nearly complete. By buying the farm from the Shepley Family, we hope to restore the promise of an agriculture based training center for veteran entrepreneurs. On the periphery of the farm we hope to place several different green building model homes to demonstrate the properties and qualities of a variety of sustainable building materials and eco-conscious engineering style. The project requires $500,000.00 contact us here.
