The Community Committee exists to bring together farmers and community members to celebrate the local agricultural community while increasing membership and awareness of the challenges facing Young Farmers. The Community Committee hosts social gatherings to increase connection amongst members and holds racial equity discussion groups to enable our chapter to grow towards a more inclusive environment.
When our members share the value that membership to FYFC provides them, they always mention community.
Our chapter has 35 active members and currently reaches close to 400 members within our community on a routine basis.
FYFC has the 5th most active membership (out of 46 across the nation) with the National Young Farmers Coalition’s membership and resources.
