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
Agri-Culture will grant each class member $1,500 toward the tuition expense. The class member will pay the remaining $500. One hundred dollars will be refunded if the participant has achieved 100% attendance for all sessions.
There are no extra curricular requirements as part of the program. It is hoped that after a person has graduated from Focus Agriculture, he/she will become more aware and involved in agricultural issues.
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
- The program is designed so that community leaders from the different fields within the county participate.
- These include elected officials, appointed representatives, non-profits, news media, local business, environmental groups, educators, etc.
