Day two on the Indianapolis adventure, (don't miss day one) and we are waiting for the bus to take us to Dow Agriscience's headquarters to attended the AgChat National Collegiate Congress. The bus may have been an hour late after it went to the wrong hotel, but that didn't slow us down! Here is a list of advice I learned on how to improve advocating for agriculture.
Three friends were looking for a place to get away from school, so they visited the Center Grove Apple Orchard in Cambridge, Iowa. There they found a beautiful farm complete with fall festivities, engaging activities, and educational aspects. The food was delicious, the hayrack ride took us to the grounds were the corn maze and pumpkin patch were located, and the pumpkins were beautiful. The life size cartoon wooden cutouts were entertaining, and the yard was complete with almost every farm animal imaginable (including a goat jungle gym), and an old one-room schoolhouse. Our favorite things included the giant trampoline and the big yellow slide. We also loved the corn pit, which was a giant pool of corn kernels. We went home as the sun was going down with smiles on our faces, corn in our shoes, and great memories from the Center Grove Apple Orchard.
I have decided on a topic for my blogging challenge, for the next 30 days I'll focus each day on why agriculture is a great industry to be in.
The last week of September means the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences celebrates on Iowa State's campus. Thursday night they sponsored a concert in the new livestock pavilion and David Nail had the honor to perform. Agriculture brings opportunities, including in other industries like music. Thanks to the college of agriculture my friend Maria was also to make a huge debut, opening for David Nail! As a junior at Iowa State, it was so cool to see her share her amazing talent with students and Ames residents. Hopefully some day we will look back and will thank agriculture for helping start Maria Doud on an amazing music career. And even if this isn't the case, thanks to CALS Council and a concert in the livestock pavilion, everyone had great memories and good fun.
