Governor Tom Wolf today announced the approval of $500,000 in Ag and Youth Grants to fund 55 projects that will improve access to agriculture education in the commonwealth, with a goal of addressing the looming 75,000 workforce deficit Pennsylvania's agriculture industry faces in the coming decade."Today's youth are tomorrow's leaders, entrepreneurs, scientists, and agribusiness owners," said Gov. Wolf. "This $500,000 is the seed to tomorrow's bountiful future for Pennsylvania agriculture."
