The AgroCouncil (AC) is an agricultural advocacy group that promotes awareness and sustainability in farming communities through education and job training. We host educational seminars in our training center and publish and distribute maps and other educational materials in our visitors’ center.
Through first-hand contact with farmers and purveyors, participants can achieve their objectives of discovery, adventure, and understanding in an agricultural setting.
The AgroCouncil provides local residents, tourists and corporate groups with easy and regular access to a visitation and training center that is open year-round. The visitors’ center provides brochures, maps, and trained staff to assist guests in experiences with nature with activities ranging from working on a farm for the day, visiting a craft beverage operation, to providing details on aquaculture excursions or fishing charters.
Whether you participate as an observer, farmhand-extern or corporate sponsor, your participation will have a lasting impact on the preservation of our agricultural regions.
