SAES to be major stop on USDA official’s “Next Generation Ag Tour”

A&T will be a major stop on USDA Deputy Secretary Krysta Harden’s upcoming “Next Generation Ag Tour“. Harden will arrive in North Carolina on Oct. 1, and her tentative itinerary for that morning includes a look at the “Discover Ag” youth education program at the University Farm and a “Women of Color in Agriculture” roundtable discussion at Coltrane Hall. Harden will also make a presentation open to all SAES students before she departs Greensboro.

Harden, who hales from a southwest Georgia farm family, has held a number of leadership positions at USDA. She is a staunch advocate of mentoring programs for beginning farmers, and is placing and emphasis on ensuring that farmers in generations to come have business acumen and access to land and capital.
