Education

Education is an integral part of American Agri-Women!

The American Agri-Women (AAW) believe in a public educated about modern agriculture because an increased knowledge of agriculture allows individuals to make informed personal choices. Our members believe that informed citizens are able to participate in establishing the policies that will support a competitive agricultural industry that can sustainably produce food and fiber for a growing population.

AAW is dedicated to increasing Agricultural literacy for current and future generations. Agricultural literacy is defined as: an understanding of agriculture’s history and current economic, social and environmental significance to all Americans. This understanding includes some knowledge of food and fiber production, processing and domestic and international marketing.
