TN AgrAbility is happy to report they are making progress with veterans' affairs. TNAP staff presented AgrAbility and the Farmer Veteran Coalition/Homegrown by Heroes label across TN at five meetings in June at veteran county service officer (VSO) regional training sessions. TNAP staff believes it was well-received. VSOs said VA is looking for an apprenticeship program to train veterans in a new career; since Tennessee State University's New Farmer Academy trains beginning farmers, it appears to be a perfect fit.
