Texas AgrAbility recently hosted the first of a series of agriculture workshops for military veterans with and without disabilities titled "From Battleground to Breaking Ground: A Transformational Journey." The workshop covered business planning, risk management, and funding sources available to military members interested in production agriculture. The workshop also addresses the possibility of farming or ranching with a disability. The program has partnered with the USDA and NRCS to create this wonderful, beneficial workshop and hopes to put on workshops across Texas over the next year.
