Why should teachers connect with you through GrowNextGen?

I believe that if we don’t start educating our teachers and youth, as a society we will become completely out of touch with food production.

What is the benefit of collaboration between industry and education?

The industry can’t find enough good workers for the positions available, so we need to start educating students on the potential careers available.
