APRIL 2022

SJR State hosts inaugural Agriculture Summit

The inaugural Putnam County Agriculture Summit will be held on Friday, May 13 at the Palatka campus Viking Center (V building) of St. Johns River State College from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. This event was created to celebrate and educate the community on this important sector of the economy in Putnam County and throughout Florida.

Farmers and “agripreneurs” from large operations, to newly-formed ventures, and those simply interested in or considering agriculture are encouraged to attend. The event is free and open to the public. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet and hear from farmers, learn about topics such as technology in agriculture, financing, agritourism, and regulatory environment, as well as collect information from vendors and even taste some homegrown taters.

The keynote panel will include Angela Tenbroeck, 2022 Woman of the Year in Agriculture, and SJR State alumnus Stephen Singleton from Singleton & Sons Farm. Local farmers and agripreneurs will introduce themselves and share information during a morning and afternoon session of “Local Farmers’ Lightning Round.
