Farmer Friday Interview with Miss West Virginia, Elizabeth Lynch

It’s Farmer Friday!πŸ‘©β€πŸŒΎπŸšœ
Today’s interview is with the Executive Director of Operation Welcome Home (OWH) in West Virginia. Tiffany Summerlin is a United States Marine Corps veteran and was a former dental hygienist before finding her niche at OWH. This organization assists veterans with fulfilling employment and provides opportunities to connect with other programs/individuals to “overcome barriers of employment”. OWH also provides a welcoming environment for veterans to come together, “share what’s on their mind, form bonds, and simply relax with other veterans who understand their trials and triumphs”. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ
Tiffany discusses the Veterans Agriculture Training (VAT) program in this interview. The VAT gives veterans the chance to gain hands-on experience in the ag field. There are opportunities to work with WVU Extension through workshops held monthly. Veterans have the chance to develop business plans, find points of contact, and receive the necessary resources to help them on their agricultural journey. If you are interested in the VAT or OWH, check out their Facebook Page or follow the link below for more information!πŸ‘‡
