 CommonGround Iowa

CommonGround is based on the idea that we need to make food and farming more personal. As consumers get further away from the farm, the more questions they have about the food they feed their families. When consumers understand that real families are raising their food and that they share common values and expectations, they have more trust in farming. 

Thirty-eight women have been chosen to represent Iowa in this national campaign to talk to the consumer. Visit findourcommonground.com for more information and resources or visit our Member Programs page to get involved. 

Iowa Ag Literacy Foundation

The Iowa Agriculture Literacy Foundation mission is to educate Iowans with a focus on youth regarding the breadth and global significance of agriculture. The Iowa Soybean Association is proud to partner with this organization to help bring more agriculture to the classroom. View their online lesson plans at iowaagliteracy.org
