UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State Cooperative Extension was recognized with the state’s “Keeping Pennsylvania Growing” award at the recent 2009 Pennsylvania Farm Show in Harrisburg.
The Extension was one of five award recipients, which included Hanover Shoe Farms, H & J Weinberg Food Bank, the Swain School and Rice Fruit Company.
Pennsylvania Secretary of Agriculture Dennis Wolff said the awards emphasize how the agriculture industry is incorporating cutting-edge technologies and the many ways agribusinesses are infusing the state’s economy with jobs and capital investments while contributing to a safe food supply.
Daney Jackson, director of Penn State Cooperative Extension said the award, in part, is an acknowledgment of extension’s contributions to making Farm Show a success.
