Representatives of Clark State Community College and other higher education members of the Community College Alliance for Agriculture Advancement (C2A3) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) will hold a virtual ceremony to sign a national memorandum of understanding.
The event will be held at 11:30 a.m., Monday, September 21, 2020, via Zoom at (https://minnstate.zoom.us/j/93499101257). Guest speakers include U.S. House of Representatives Agriculture Committee Chair Collin Peterson of Minnesota, NRCS Acting Chief Kevin Norton and representatives of C2A3.
NRCS and its state agencies are partnering with member institutions of the Alliance to support hands-on student learning in the field, to develop future conservation-minded farmers and ranchers and to cultivate more graduates interested in pursuing careers with NRCS.
The C2A3 is a collaboration of nine Midwest community colleges across eight states who have joined together to provide quality education, training and demonstrations to future farm producers and agriculture service providers. Members of the Alliance partner to share resources, faculty expertise, curriculum and tools to advance agriculture in their regions.
