A new program, 'Battleground to Breaking Ground', aims to increase the number of veteran beginning farmers and ranchers in Texas. Texas AgrAbility is offering the training project thanks to a grant received from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture. The program hopes to educate 725 military veterans and first-time farmers about how to start farming. The program is now accepting applications through March 10, 2017. Apply for the program on the Texas AgrAbility website. The Battleground to Breaking Ground Entrepreneurial Training Project will begin April 28.
