Program Description

Many veterans struggle with PTSD, depression or traumatic brain injury. The E2C symposium is designed to partner veterans with business mentors from SCORE and the Small Business Development Center to address some of the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to successfully manage farms as sustainable businesses. Additionally, the afternoon will consist of sessions to introduce and receive training on various assistive technologies that can address memory, physical, and organizational limitations.
