Farm City Breakfast set for Tuesday

TARBORO — The 35th Annual Farm City Breakfast, hosted by the Edgecombe County Cooperative Extension Service and Tarboro/Edgecombe Chamber of Commerce, will be held at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday. The breakfast will be held at the East Carolina Agriculture and Education Center, located on Kingsboro Road.

Dr. John Havlin, professor of Soil Science at N.C. State University, will be the keynote speaker and will address the continuing importance of agriculture and how it will feed one-third more people by 2050.

Since 1955, the National Farm-City Council has supported educational programming to build interdependence between rural and urban citizens, and the president of the United States has annually proclaimed the week leading to and including Thanksgiving Day as National Farm-City ® Week.

In recent years, the major focus of the programs and materials has been on consumer and classroom education. Student activity sheets, teacher packets, placemats and bookmarks are just a few of the materials the Council has created to support its mission.

Persons interested in purchasing tickets are asked to call 823-7241.
