Green Vets Organix
Matt Rudman (speaker)

Join us for a potluck dinner and then to learn from Matt Rudman about the new Green Vets Organix project.

Green Vets Organix is a 3.25 acre piece of land on Teffer Farms, able to produce over 20 varieties of vegetables, fruits and herbs that Veterans, Brian Sales and Luke Davies, as well as Matt Rudman are turning into an organic - based CSA that serves veterans in the Greater Milwaukee and Waukesha Area.

The mission is to grow the finest quality herbs, fruits and vegetables and raise high quality egg-laying chickens for the local community using only natural and sustainable farming methods, free from non-organic pesticides or fertilizers.

And let’s talk about some possible harvest outings and activities. Apple picking? Canning together? Visiting a “new” farmers market?
