Farm Safety for Just Kids Disbands

SHARE

The safety organization, Farm Safety for Just Kids, has closed its doors. After 30 years of advocating safety on the farm, the board of the organization has voted to disband the group. In a statement, the group said Farm Safety for Just Kids would donate $5,000 each to the National 4-H Council and the National FFA Organization in “recognition of their important advocacy for youth safety in agriculture.” The remainder of Farm Safety for Just Kids’ assets will be donated to the Progressive Agriculture Foundation. Farm Safety for Just Kids will also give its library of educational materials and other intellectual property to the Progressive Agriculture Foundation to remain free of charge to the public.

As agriculture has changed since the organization was founded in 1987, the Board of Farm Safety for Just Kids believes that the mission of making agriculture safer for youth will be better served by combining its resources with the Progressive Agriculture Foundation. The statement says “Farm Safety for Just Kids has accomplished what Marilyn Adams set out to do nearly 30 years ago.”
