“You never think it will happen to you.”

That was the haunting refrain behind the safety messages delivered at the Farm Safety 4 Just Kids workshop at the Johnston County Extension Center March 12. There an audience of more than 80 participants heard about farm safety and health programs for children, youth and families at the event coordinated locally by North Carolina Cooperative Extension, N.C. Agromedicine Institute/AgriSafe North Carolina, N.C. Farm Bureau and Ashe/Alleghany Rural Community Safety 4 All Seasons. The workshop was sponsored by USDA Risk Management Agency through a grant to the Farm Safety 4 Just Kids (FS4JK ) organization.
