Make a tax deductible charitable donation. All donations made will go directly to supporting veterans participating in our Sustainable Agriculture curriculum.  Many of these vets are obtaining an education that will lead them to a viable career path in agriculture, while being embraced in a safe farm environment that reduces symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury.  SUPPORT TALMAR AND SUPPORT OUR VETERANS!!

TALMAR’ farm is located in Cromwell Valley Park, which is owned by Baltimore County Recreation and Parks.  In recognition of TALMAR’s   history of providing  successful programs in horticultural therapy,   we were chosen to  fulfill a gap in the community’s need for individual with disabilities.    We are grateful for this partnership.
