Good for them! It's encouraging to see that demand for some jobs is increasing. Readers should know, however, that some rural districts have actually CUT ag teaching positions.

Pretty cool to be a farmer.

Great news! For those who have not been in these programs, it's not just farming any more. There is much to offer and seems to touch the hearts of the kids who get involved. I'm so happy to hear it's florishing.(-:

Given the growing interest in growing one's own food, urban farming and a growth in people wanting to know their farmer and where food comes from - this seems like a great educational need. That and 40% of farmers in the US are over age 55 - we really do need to think about encouraging young people to farm (and figuring how they can make it financially feasible.)

ALL SCHOOLS IN THE UNITED STATES SHOULD HAVE AGRICULTURE TEACHERS AND CLASSES TO DO THE HANDS-ON METHOD OF GROWING FOOD AS THIS ENHANCES MENTAL, SOCIAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH.
