The February meeting (1:00 PM) of the Philadelphia Society for Promoting Agriculture featured a terrific presentation by Ed Kee, president of Nuffield USA, and former Secretary of Agriculture for Delaware (and former member of PSPA).
Ed was joined with one of the recent Nuffield Scholars from our region. Should also mention that Jean Lonie (well-known to many of us for her work with PA agriculture and a PSPA member) is the vice-president of Nuffield USA. Here’s a little more about the Nuffield program.
The Nuffield International Farming Scholars program is a unique global network of farmers and agri-professionals that focuses on:
- Personal capacity building
- Excellence in agricultural production, distribution, research, and management
- Local, national, and global thought leadership
Nuffield International is a non-profit body that provides over-arching support and governance for Nuffield Farming Scholars member nations, along with associated countries where the Nuffield program is taking shape.
We (Nuffield) believe that agriculture is the foundation of a stable society, and that in order for agriculture to be dynamic, remain competitive, and serve society, we need leadership and expertise from those in the industry. The work done by Nuffield International supports the development of individuals in agriculture around the world, giving Nuffield Scholars the confidence, knowledge, and network to step up as leaders at home and on the global stage.
