Discovery Park Partners with Farmspace Systems and VETSA

A unique view of Discovery Park of America can be seen in these photos and video provided by Chance Weldon and Ted Moore with Farmspace Systems who recently demonstrated the latest in drone technology for Scott Williams, Discovery Park CEO, and Ardis Porter, retired Army Colonel and the director of VETSA (Veterans Employed in Technology and Service in Agriculture).

VETSA is a pilot program designed as a 12-month intensive experience with coursework and hands-on participation in active farming and research projects or a choice of certification programs that provide valuable and marketable professional skills with a shorter time commitment. This program offers veterans the opportunity to participate in trade workshops and conferences, networking and post-training support.

Farmspace Systems recently partnered with Discovery Park on the permanent exhibit “AgriCulture: Innovating for Our Survival.”
