The Mission of the Connecticut Agricultural Education Foundation is to seek and administer funds for the benefit of programs that promote Connecticut agriculture through education.
Distressingly, agricultural illiteracy is a reality in Connecticut. Too many people just don’t know where their food and plants come from or how they are produced. Too many people don’t have the basic agricultural knowledge needed to make wise and thoughtful choices about the issues facing farms today. The consequences of this lack of awareness can be disastrous for all of us connected to the agricultural community.
