Wilson is an Air Force veteran who is living in Stroudsburg, PA. He served as a mechanic from 2003-2014 at a variety of duty stations in the USA and overseas, including combat deployments.
After leaving the Air Force, Wilson was unsure of what to do, so he volunteered to make a garden at a local school and was soon hooked on agriculture. He already has grown multiple seasons of peppers and greens at his current residence, along with some small sales to local restaurants.
This increasing interest in agriculture led him to the Veteran Farmer Training Program and Wilson began training in early March with Brett. His goal is to expand his operations and eventually start his own small-scale farm, creating healthy food for his family and community.
