Agrilinks, Ag Educators Corner: “Happy Campers: Growing Agricultural Leaders in the Community”

In our ongoing relationship with Agrilinks, InnovATE has developed a new feature, the Ag Educator’s Corner. This series of monthly blog posts provides insight & tips to agricultural educators.

In the most recent installment to our Ag Educators Corner blog series, Madison Taylor, a junior at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities and Dr. Nina Crutchfield, an experienced agricultural educator and local program success specialist with the National FFA Organziation, shares about a program in Uganda intended to ignite a passion for agriculture.

Farm camp, similar to many U. S. 4-H and FFA camps, engages people from diverse areas in agriculture to provide experiential learning opportunities to witness and gain skills, as well as connect and engage with entrepreneurs and industry leaders.
