57 (The Average Age of the American Farmer)

57 (The Average Age of the American Farmer)

The average age of the American farmer is 57. Where will we find the next generation of greenhorns (young American farmers) and how will they be trained for these green collar jobs? Food education isn’t limited to helping the people who grow our food; we also need edible schoolyards like that of Alice Waters in Berkeley, California to educate our school children about how to make healthy food choices as well.
