Growing up on a farm I was involved in The Future Farmers of America organization in high school. It is a great organization that gives youth involved in agriculture the opportunity to develop leadership skills, learn more about the industry, have projects such as raising livestock, crops, and other related projects.
I happened across this in the Reader's Digest where Campbell's Soup is teaming up with the FFA and are restoring barns across America. You can go to this website, www.helpgrowyoursoup.com, and vote on your favorite barn. Campbell's will donate $1.00 for every vote to the FFA to help them in the barn restoration project.
I find this very important. I have a great appreciation for the farmers across America. As I have traveled, I have always been interested in barns. I really enjoy seeing them. It causes you to wonder about the people, animals, and machinery associated with them. You see alot of barns "dying" or falling down, not functioning. What will happen when all the barns are gone and the farming is not happening?
Let's not let the barn's die! Check out this website and vote!
