Good Soil!

Karl Bradley ·
The people we surround ourselves with are more valuable than words can often express. Recently, an old friend popped into my mind so I reached out to catch up. He was amazing, generous & supportive as always. We spoke about many things but the most prevalent & surprising was workplace culture.

Juntos 4-H and Purdue University

Diana M Urieta ·
The National Juntos Movement, built on the efforts of many Extension professionals who have a vision to partner and serve a growing community in our states, has a success story to share. During my time with Juntos and Extension, I have worked with great minds who think outside the box and understand the practices and engagement it takes to walk side by side with our youth and their families. I want to highlight one such Extension professional. Over six years ago, I met Xiomara Diaz, who grew...
