We started with our Facebook group, which in the matter of just a few weeks grew to over 20,000 members (we have grown to over 65,000 members as of October 2016), and we began by sharing our stories about how “our jobs depend on ag”. By putting a face with entire agriculture industry chain, we hope the impact of agriculture will be recognized by not just political leaders, but consumers as well. This would make a huge difference to the farmers of California. We have “My Job Depends on Ag” decals you can purchase on our Merchandise page, to further help get the word out, show our solidarity, and eventually fund our scholarships & other educational efforts.
The support for our efforts has been tremendous, and we encourage you to like our Facebook page and tell your stories along with us. Help us spread the word about how everyone depends on ag, whether they think so or not.
