Earth Day 2013

Every day is Earth Day if you're a farmer or a rancher.
 
I believe that there is no better steward of the land than a farmer or a rancher.
The land is their livelihood, they have a special appreciation and connection to it.
 
This Earth Day, Farm Credit of Southern Colorado had the privilege of hosting a state wide Farm Credit event at our office.  We celebrated American and Colorado agriculture during a special engagement with New Orleans-based Dear World, a renowned portraiture project whose international collection of portraits tells stories, inspires, celebrates and causes us to reflect.
 
Our group considered the question, "What do you want the world to know about American agriculture?"
 
Even though the idea is a little out of the box, especially for a conservative Farm Credit group, I think everyone had a really good time.  Here are a few snapshots from our day.
 
Here for GOOD.
Farm Credit of Southern Colorado's new campaign we're rolling out in May.

Our President & CEO sharing his message.

We were honored to have Colorado Commissioner of Ag John Salazar attend.

Sharing his message uniquely.

Board members and staff enjoyed working with
Dear World founder and photographer Robert Fogarty.

I am thrilled that I got to participate in this project and look forward to doing so again when I attend the Farm Credit marketing/communications meeting next month in New Orleans.
