Ed Kee’s Guest Lecture

Ed Kee’s lecture about the Department of Agriculture educated the class on what the Department of Agriculture does that we do not usually link to them. It was very interesting to learn that the Department of Agriculture inspects the states gas meters, and I have checked for the Department of Agriulture sticker on every gas pump since. Mr. Kee also explained to us what Delaware is doing to protect its farmland, and to keep enough farmers to support our state. The Farmland Preservation Program was a pleasant surprise for me, as I have always worried about the future of Delawares farm land with our steadily rising population. The young farmers program also surprised me, learning that the Department of Agriculture is looking for ways to aid young people into the farming industry. I enjoyed knowing that the secretary of the Department of Agriculture took time out of his schedule to come talk to college students and that he made every effort to make the students understand what he and the Department of Agriculture does for Delaware.
