Whether it's Agriculture in the Classroom lessons, a Project R.E.D. (Rural Education Day) or county fair activities, Promotion and Education (P&E) volunteers share the story of Michigan agriculture with consumers of all ages.
Led by a state committee with representation from each of Michigan Farm Bureau's 11 districts, active P&E committees can be found within county Farm Bureau organizations across Michigan.
