I have been terrible about posting blogs lately.... but I will blame it on the fact that I was busy writing this one for AgCareers.com!
If you have read my blog before, you probably know that between my Nuffield research and my job with Ontario Agri-Food Education I am pretty immersed in agriculture careers.
This is no exception. But it is a bit of a different angle. The focus is Gen Z - the young people in our society who are sitting in classrooms. They will be the future workforce. So how do we get them to consider a career in agriculture?

I was raised as the seventh generation on a mixed livestock farm near Guelph, Ontario. Currently I am living in the beautiful Okanagan region of BC, where my husband works for Blue Mountain Winery. I maintain my close ties to Ontario agriculture through my job with AgScape (Ontario Agri-Food Education Inc.) and hope to bring a national, and global perspective to agricultural issues.
