Bridging the Gap from Urban to Rural

I wrote about a neat booth at a county fair in my last post that's mission was to take a step towards "bridging the gap" from urban to rural and help show kids in a hands-on way some things that farmers do in their everyday life. 

Last weekend I went to Memphis, TN for the Delta Fair and stumbled across an educational booth there as well!  This one had some live animals and also a few facts about different segments of the agriculture industry.  Take a look!

 While nothing can replace learning about agriculture like a good ol' day on the farm, I find it wonderful that folks are taking small steps to help educate others on agricultural products and the benefits that ag brings to our lifestyle.
