“From Battleground to Breaking Ground: A Transformational Journey” workshop will be held Saturday, June 16, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Texas Agricultural Education and Heritage Center, located at 390 Cordova Road in Seguin. The deadline for registration is Thursday, June 7. Registration is $10 per person. Lunch will be provided.

The workshop is for agriculturalists interested in acquiring information about business start-up, business plan development, possibilities for farming/ranching with a disability, financial funding sources for farming or ranching, and resources to support ag business operations.

“The workshop will address the possibilities for ranching or farming for veterans with disabilities,” said Bryan Davis, AgriLife Extension agent for Bexar County. “We’re hoping military veterans will take advantage of this program which has been uniquely designed with input from AgriLife Extension, Texas AgrAbility, the USDA’s Natural Resource Conservation Service, the National Farmer Veteran Coalition, the Farm Service Agency, the Texas Department of Agriculture, Goodwill San Antonio, and others,” he said.

Texas AgrAbility’s focus is on connecting, assisting, and empowering agricultural producers, their family members, and employees with disabilities and chronic health conditions to stay engaged in production agriculture.

“About 45 percent of returning veterans are from rural areas and we want to enable veterans with or without disabilities to return to the area of production agriculture if they choose,” said Dr. Cheryl Grenwelge, AgriLife Extension specialist in disability transition with the Texas AgrAbility Project.
