Tomorrow on the show I am featuring an entrepreneur who is helping to teach children about agriculture. This reminded me of the great interview I did with Katie Benson about her efforts to do the same, and I wanted to bring that episode back for you today. Below are the original show notes for this episode.
Introducing Katie Benson!
Katie has a different supervised agricultural experience than we normally profile. However, I had to have her on. She is doing a lot to advocate for agricuture.
Katie's SAE is "ag education." She is teaching all the third graders in her school district about agriculture. She has done a number of things including dispelling myths about agriculture and making products, such as butter.
Katie has had multiple students tell her that they want to join both 4H and FFA after they are done with one of her lessons. She plans on continuing her education after high school and becoming an agricultural education teacher and FFA advisors.
