Foreign Friday

Notice the "FFJ" emblem on this boy's hat

I didn't know until I visited the Sanbongi Nougyou Agricultural School that the Future Farmers of America organization had an international component.

Here is what I discovered online:
"Recognizing diversity as a strength of an organization, in 1955, the FFA went international. As a result, there are Future Farmer Organizations in Japan, Brazil, Columbia, Korea, Mexico, Panama, the Philippines and Thailand."

  1. That's neat!! Good for the Future Farmers for being international... and good for all of us, actually.

  2. I had no idea there was an international component. How cool

  3. I think farmers are more appreciated in Japan.
