Feeding souls with agricultural knowledge

By Jennifer Carrico

Celebrate the choices we have in the marketplace for our food and those who produce it.

That is the mission of a group of youth who want everyone to know how important agriculture is in everyone's lives.

I Love Farmers...They Feed My Soul was formed in 2009 as a response to political events in California surrounding the Proposition 2 ballot initiative by the Humane Society of the United States on poultry cages, veal production and swine gestation crates.

"We are not a school club or a member organization. We are a 'movement,' much in the sense the way environmental groups are movements. We grow from grassroots enthusiasm and passion of young people. We organize around college campuses for convenience, but are not officially associated with any school," said J. Scott Vernon, volunteer executive director of the group and professor of ag education and communications at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.
