ADVOCATE OF AGRICULTURE

THE FIRST OCCUPATION GIVEN BY GOD THE CREATOR

THE FIRST INDUSTRY

The art, science and story of agriculture is overlooked.  One and a half percent of the population in the US is involved in production agriculture. Approximately two thirds of the American population do not even garden. Realize that God created Adam and Eve and put them into a garden to be stewards of the garden. I know that not everyone is to be a farmer. However, the basis of agriculture should be understood and appreciated. Rainbow is located on a working ranch. This setting provides invaluable opportunities for youth and their families to learn. Agriculture is food and fiber. Agriculture is soil and stewardship. Agriculture is essential and enduring. However many have lost appreciation for this most basic practice.
