Military veterans, reservists, transitioning active duty personnel, and their spouses have an opportunity to participate in a free bus tour of local Hillsborough County agribusinesses to explore career options available in the agriculture industry.
Today's agriculture industries increasingly focus on using technology and management systems for the production of food, medicine, consumer products, and energy. During the tour, participants will be introduced to career paths and job opportunities within modern production agriculture operations and supporting industries by visiting a variety of farming operations and the University of Florida Gulf Coast Research and Education Center in southern Hillsborough County. Seating is limited. Lunch will be provided.
The tour is organized through a partnership between Hillsborough County Economic Development, Hillsborough County Farm Bureau, Hillsborough County Extension, University of Florida Gulf Coast Research and Education Center, Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, Farm Credit of Central Florida, and The Mosaic Company. Hillsborough County and its partners are committed to assisting transitioning veterans by providing meaningful connections to quality civilian career opportunities and training.
