RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A nonprofit organization that assists veterans and their families is sponsoring scholarships for a farmer and rancher training program.

The Farmer Veteran Coalition is offering the financial assistance for the 10-session training program that will take place during the winter in Rapid City. Participants will learn about low-cost, sustainable methods of farming and ranching, as well as ways to launch a profitable enterprise.

The grassroots group Dakota Rural Action will be hosting the seminar. Classes will be taught by local farmers, ranchers and agriculture professionals.

The group says more than 80 percent of graduates over the past five years are engaged in farming activities.
