Cultivating the next generation of Farming Now.
Joined by the shared belief that we will need the next generation to invest in controlled-environment agriculture, we are working with our partners in education to support an AgTech ecosystem in our region.
This is Farming Now. Here is what it can do.
The University of Pikeville
We are working together to build major and minor tracks to provide the skills needed to bolster Central Appalachia as a hub for AgTech. UPike students on AgTech tracks receive real-life experience, investing the the region before graduation.
Shelby Valley High School
We are working alongside Pike County Public Schools to build after-school AgTech programming, educating students about growing career paths in this field locally. Students from schools across the county are able to come and learn basic skills, learn about career paths, and begin to form the foundation for their future.
