Softwine Market
Softwine Market is a series of projects all related to providing sustainable living products to local residents.

Van bed and breakfast (vanbnb)
A division of Softwine Market.
A core belief of Softwine Market is that there is enough available land and financial resources in MoCo so that MoCo can become the breadbasket of the DC region. A related belief is that the workforce to farm the land is right here also: recent high school graduates who are not going to college; soldiers returning to civilian life and who are seeking jobs. The question arises of where the workers will be housed. Vanbnb addresses this housing question.

The Vanbnb product: Housing, transportation, clothing, and training for sub-ag workers.
