Patriot Guardens (West Virginia National Guard)

Patriot Guardens is an agricultural initiative of the W.Va. National Guard designed to align and mobilize strategic efforts in order to provide new economic and employment opportunities for West Virginia veterans, active military members and their families


Patriot Guardens is a program of the West Virginia National Guard which provides agricultural education and training, workforce development courses and business support for West Virginia veterans, active military service members and military families throughout the state. In addition to the training and education, Patriot Guardens focuses on economic development activities, particularly with businesses who have a particular interest in the agriculture industry or those that have interest in hiring military veterans. Though the program directly supports the men and women of the West Virginia National Guard, the program is available to veterans and service members of all branches and their families.
