SAN ANTONIO -- The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, in cooperation with the Texas AgrAbility Project and U.S. Department of Agriculture, will present an agriculture workshop for military veterans Saturday, Nov. 10, from 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. at the San Antonio International Farm and Ranch Show.

The no-cost workshop, called “From Battleground to Breaking Ground,” is one of numerous free educational opportunities to be provided to attendees of the show, which takes place Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 8-10, on the grounds of the Freeman Coliseum located at 3201 E. Houston St. in San Antonio.

“This program will give military veterans interested in farming or ranching the opportunity to get information on aspects of starting, developing, and funding an agriculture-based business,” said Bryan Davis, AgriLife Extension agent for Bexar County and educational coordinator for the show. Davis said the workshop addresses the possibilities for ranching or farming for veterans both with and without disabilities.

Agenda items include an overview of agribusiness opportunities and a talk by a veteran involved in production agriculture, followed by a panel discussion on resources available for funding and business plan development. The program concludes with a presentation on the Texas AgrAbility Project.

“Texas AgrAbility is a program of AgriLife Extension that focuses on connecting, assisting, and empowering agricultural producers, their family members, and employees with disabilities and chronic health conditions to stay engaged in production agriculture,” said Dr. Cheryl Grenwelge, AgriLife Extension specialist in disability transition with the Texas AgrAbility Project. “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.”

Register for the program online at http://txagrability.tamu.edu/ or download and fill in the registration form from the website and mail to: Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, Attn: Cheryl Grenwelge, Ph.D., 2251 TAMUS, College Station, TX 77843-2251.
