Guest Lecture: Ed Kee

Former Secretary of Agriculture Ed Kee came in to talk about Delaware’s agriculture.  He spoke a lot about the wide diversity of products that Delaware specializes and is known for. For example, our state used to be bug on canned vegetables with many locations that would can and preserve products for the public.  Now, in 2019, we only have two of those locations remaining.  Another key point he made was the importance of the Agland Preservation Program.  This allows for land to be held in preservation forever and only ever be bought, sold, or used for farming.  This keeps development off of those lands so farming can keep occurring.
