Farm Beginnings™ Coming to Nebraska!
LYONS, NE – "The Farm Beginnings™ program is coming to Nebraska. This program unites many groups and organizations in Nebraska to create all the tools necessary to support and foster new farmers.
Think it can't be done? During the first eight years of the project, 222 people have completed the Farm Beginnings™ course in southeast and western Minnesota. Over 60 percent of those graduates are farming, and nearly 20 percent of Farm Beginnings™ graduates have moved from urban to rural areas.
The press conference celebrating the Nebraska kickoff of this successful program will be on June 7, at 2 pm, in the Capitol Rotunda in Lincoln, Nebraska. This release is to get you to put this event on your calendar! We'd like to see you there!
Guests are still being determined at this time, but we will be posting a follow-up to this note later this week. We hope to see you there! If you'd like an interview beforehand, please call 402.687.2100 and we'll coordinate the arrangements!
