Quinlan: Cultivate the seeds of safety

Summer is just around the corner, and soon kids will be home from school. Whether that means working on 4-H projects, tending to gardens or running in the yard — youth will be spending more time outside.

For those in rural areas, there are unique safety hazards to keep an eye out for. The bottom line: It’s the adult’s responsibility to make sure your home and yard are safe.

This week, I wrote a story about free educational material available at: https://cultivatesafety.org/work-guideline-booklets/.

I encourage you to check out ways you can keep kiddos safe on your farm.
