Here are a few ways you can raise the level of discussion about agriculture in your communities.
School Visit Planning Tool: Do you have employees who are excited to connect with local schools to share what you do? Use the Pillars as a guide as you sit down to plan your visit. Begin by selecting a Pillar of focus for your visit. Next, select the age group you plan to visit to identify messaging.
