So we both try to talk to college-age folks about the choices they have, and encourage them to think critically about their options before just going to college. College is an amazing experience, and there is much to be said for higher education. But getting into a ton of debt to be educated in a field you probably won't pursue isn't necessarily going to make your job prospects or future brighter. Taking time, or a few classes of interest at a community college should be a respected option. And of course for students interested in agriculture--we should foster that interest to the best of our abilities. So tomorrow, we are going to put our time where our mouths are and participate in this event:
Cool right? I'm looking forward to it! I can't just spout off on the internet and expect change. Getting our thoughts out there via the blog is good, but this gives us an opportunity to interact with people in a different setting. We'll report back how it goes, and if you're near by we hope to see you there!
