Focus Agriculture is Agri-Culture’s “first-in-the-nation” educational program. It is an opportunity for community leaders to participate in a nine-session intensive program acquiring knowledge about a broad spectrum of agriculture.
Focus Agriculture is a first-in-the-nation, national award winning program. It allows community
leaders to have a two-way conversation with people involved in agriculture. The program is
structured so that participants gain in-depth knowledge of the many commodities, issues and
people involved in local agriculture here in Santa Cruz County and the Pajaro Valley.
The program has won a national award. Several communities throughout the United States have duplicated this program. The once-a-month day-long seminars, including farm tours and hands-on experience, cover such topics as:
- Production and labor
- Ethnic groups in agriculture
- Government relations and politics
- Regional diversity of commodities produced
- Environment and technology
- Marketing and foreign competition
- Farm tours and hands-on experience
