We have just completed a mailing to all the members of the Rural Schools Association regarding the 2017 Food & Farm Experience, but we want to be sure the information about the Food and Farm Experience reaches all areas of New York State. We look for a roster that is diverse in every way. Please reach out to every potential participant. If you need some brochures, just let us know!
This two-day program will add tremendous dimension to the customary vision of agricultural careers. Agriculture and your locale are the direct beneficiaries of this program, which prepares career counselors to guide the next generation to career choices that are a win-win for the individuals, New York State, and agriculture.
The Food and Farm Experience (FFX) is scheduled for Oct. 18-20, 2017, at The Beeches Inn & Conference Center in Rome, New York. Tours, workshops, and interactive sessions are being prepared and panelists contacted. An application is necessary for inclusion in the annual FFX. The costs associated with attending this experience are covered for food, lodging, and workshop materials. It’s a tremendous “Experience”! Check out some pictures from the 2016 FFX on our website.
