MANHATTAN – Anyone interested in learning more about all facets of farming is encouraged to apply to the Ag Academy at the Kansas Farm Bureau. The one-year program focuses on advocacy, leadership and service, education, rural communities and farm families.
“Ag Academy offers a first-hand view of all the issues and challenges that farmers face on a daily basis,” says Pam Dankenbring, program manager. “The program will feature virtual and in-person sessions, including statewide tours that will give attendees a detailed insight into the faces and methods of agricultural production in Kansas.”
September 10 is the deadline to apply to Ag Academy. Everyone is welcome to apply, but class sizes are limited to 20 and a fee of $ 100 is due prior to the first in-person session. Meals for in-person sessions are provided, but travel, accommodation and other costs are the responsibility of the participants.
The Ag Academy begins in October and consists of seven capsules, each with two sessions, one virtual and one in person. Times and locations for tours and speakers will be confirmed once participants have been selected.
