Seminar for Community Leaders Slated in February
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/15/2014
Modern agriculture and its place in our rural communities will be discussed at the educational seminar, 'Growing Together, Growing Stronger,' on February 19 at the Sheraton Madison Hotel in Madison. The program is jointly sponsored by the Wisconsin Counties Association, Wisconsin Towns Association and
Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin as part of the Agriculture Community Engagement program.
The groups have collaborated to discuss the issues and questions around agriculture in our communities. Presentations relevant to communities and the dairy industry will be offered.
The seminar will start with registration at 9:30 a.m. and conclude by 3:30 p.m. Anyone interested in growing green and vibrant communities that include agriculture is invited to participate.
"Agriculture touches so much of community life, from the economic to environmental, from the landscape to the quality of life," says PDPW Director Shelly Mayer. "Programs like these help agriculture and local communities better understand each other so we can co-exist and thrive."
