Brooklyn FFA, working hard

FFA Chapter Tribute - Brooklyn FFA
This chapter in Mississippi manages a 170 acre-plus farm, and lots more.

Mike Pearson profiles Brooklyn FFA Chapter from Brooklyn, Mississippi, a club that stays very busy. Member Brody Martin talks about his floral project that sent him to nationals.

The weekly FFA Chapter Tribute is an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the good work of your local chapter. Tell us about what you're doing, give us some history from your group and tell our viewers of the work you do in the community. FFA chapters across the country deserve recognition for the work they do, make sure we include yours.

To have your chapter considered for this weekly feature, send along information about your group by e-mail to Orion Samuelson at orion@agbizweek.com or to Max Armstrong at max@agbizweek.com. They'll get your group on the list of those that will be covered in the future. It's a chance to share your story beyond the local community. Drop Orion or Max a "line" soon.
