Founded in 1978, the Washington Agriculture and Forestry Education Foundation (AgForestry) is a leadership development program for adults working within and connected to Washington State’s agriculture, forestry, and fishing industries. Strong leadership is vital to maintaining healthy farms, forests, near shore environments, and rural communities. This is where the AgForestry Leadership Program comes in. This program helps leaders develop critical skills for, and a better understanding of, natural resources and rural communities of Washington State.

The deadline for receiving completed applications in the Foundation office is April 30, 2013. The first seminar for Class 36 will be in October 2013.

This program is all about building capacity in the form of leaders who act independently and work effectively in coalitions to achieve a successful future.
