In my last post, I mentioned a few quick notes about what I got out of #SAEA2011, Here is some more info about the Sustainable Agriculture Education Association and how Kentucky’s new programming fits into new efforts by universities to help provide support for the growing movement in food.
Here’s one choice quotation:
Some of the people were similar to us—big farms with apprenticeship programs,” Williams said. “Other people had apprenticeship programs, but it is with volunteers on a really small garden, one-fourth acre, one-half acre, something like that. The way the teaching is done, what programs are run, there’s a huge variation on the way things are done—from whole curricula like us to one class. So people come here for different reasons.
