Mark Anderson is a newly elected board member for the U.S. Custom Harvesters. He was part of the team representing the organziation at the National Association of Farm Broadcasting last week to talk about a few of their most important issues.
One of the most exciting is a partnership with Ag in the Classroom, Anderson told me. Leftover footage from their documentary Great American Harvest has been used to create a curriculum for schools. The materials are now available to help teachers bring real-life agriculture to students.
In addition to the curriculum, U.S. Customer Harvesters has also been revamping their own agenda.
“We’re released our Strategic Plan, which we’ve been working on for the past two years and released that this summer.” Anderson says. “We’re going to be moving forward with that and starting some grants to work on initiatives as we see fit.”
