Welcome to the Cultivating A Community podcast, created by the Belgrade, Montana FFA chapter. In this podcast, we talk about the incredible organization of FFA, the good deeds (and good times) of the Belgrade chapter, issues facing the modern day agriculturist, and likely a few other random topics that cross our minds.

The Story Behind Cultivating a Community

I saw that some FFA chapters and leaders were starting podcasts. One thing I quickly learned from the long bus rides to competitions, is that my friends in the chapter are a lot of fun to talk to. So I thought, Why doesn’t the Belgrade chapter have a podcast? I thought about it, and figured I should start something up. I applied for a grant that our chapter’s alumni group was
offering. They generously accepted my application, which gave me a good starting point.

Meet Your Host

I’m Hayes Holland. I’m the host of Cultivating A Community, as well as the secretary of the Belgrade FFA Chapter. I grew up around agriculture. My dad had a small herd of Scottish Highlander cattle and grew alfalfa, and later bought what is now the WB Ranch and Arena, which I manage. He put me in 4-H when I was little, which I loved. So when I heard about FFA in my freshman year from some good friends of mine, it seemed fit that I join the organization. Much like 4-H, I quickly came to love it.
