Local farmers in the Memphis area are producing a tremendous amount of food and fiber, but unfortunately, many who live here never see the work that goes into the production that we depend on daily. This event is done as a collaboration of Shelby County Soil Conservation District, UT-TSU Extension and Agricenter International.
Agricenter International, the education, agribusiness, research and agricultural hub of the Mid-South has a $524 million annual economic impact on the region, hosts over 1.3 million visitors annually, and has educated tens of thousands of students.
