“The Battleground to Breaking Ground program is designed primarily for military veterans, but anyone interested in starting or expanding an agriculture-oriented business is welcome to attend,” said Makenzie McLaurin Thomas, AgriLife Extension program manager for Texas AgrAbility, College Station. “And although Texas AgrAbility helps people with disabilities remain in production agriculture, you don’t need to be disabled to participate in the Battleground to Breaking Ground program.”
Workshop sessions will address agriculture business startup, business plan development, opportunities for farming/ranching with a disability, financial funding sources and marketing agricultural business support resources.
