With one 2-day training behind them and two to go, 24 Extension educators are well into their preparations to become champions and train-the-trainers for our Path to the Plate initiative.
During a Day 1 focus on health and a Day 2 focus on production agriculture (May 31–June 1, 2017), participants learned more about Texas A&M-based resources such as the Center for Translational Environmental Health Research , the Center for Remote Health Technologies and Systems and the Fruit and Vegetable Improvement Center. During a trip to the field, topics turned to farm technologies and agricultural inputs.
Matt Bochat of Victoria County gave a good overview of the need for Path to the Plate in this article in the Victoria Advocate. Along with Matt, the rest of the Path to the Plate champions are named below.
