Here at OAFE, our mission is to work together to increase awareness of the agri-food industry by providing educational programs and resources. We believe that it is necessary to acknowledge members of the public that have helped us to accomplish this goal. These people continue to share their passion for agriculture with students by visiting classrooms in their community, talking with students at events and perhaps providing them and their teachers with some of our educational resources. They continually demonstrate that you don’t have to be a teacher in order to educate youth in your community and set a great example for others to follow in their footsteps.
This section will include profiles of members of the public that have reached out to students about agriculture and highlight what they have done to increase awareness of the agri-food industry.
