SAN ANTONIO -- The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, in cooperation with the Texas AgrAbility Project and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, will present an agriculture workshop for military veterans Thursday, July 25, from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. at the 4th Reconnaissance Battalion located at 3837 Binz Engleman Road in San Antonio.

The no-cost workshop, called “From Battleground to Breaking Ground: A Transformational Journey,” gives military veterans interested in farming or ranching the opportunity to get information on aspects of starting, developing, and funding an agriculture-based business, said program coordinators.

“The Texas AgrAbility Program’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,” 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.

For more information, contact Master Sgt. Ruben Villarreal at 210-223-1551, ext. 365.

To ensure adequate event space, attendees are requested to RSVP by registering in advance at http://txagrability.tamu.edu/. A registration form can also be downloaded from the site and mailed to: Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, Attn: Dr. Cheryl Grenwelge, 2147 TAMU, College Station, TX 77843-2251 or emailed to EMPilosi@ag.tamu.edu .

For more information, go to http://txagrability.tamu.edu/ or contact Grenwelge at 979-845-3727 or chgrenwelge@ag.tamu.edu.
