A new UNM-Taos program collaboration: helping vets, helping the planet
December 22, 2021
On 50 scenic acres in Carson, New Mexico, sits the self-sustained Veterans Off-Grid (VOG) property — a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded by Ryan Timmermans in 2017, whose mission is to restore a sense of purpose, community, sustainability, and peace to veterans in need. Timmermans took one of Mark Goldman’s construction courses at UNM-Taos. Goldman learned of Timmerman’s mission and started informally helping with VOG. A collaboration was born.
