Farm Safety 4 Just Kids was created in 1987 by Marilyn Adams after the death of her 11-year-old son in a gravity flow grain wagon accident. The organization is devoted to educating youth and their families about farm safety to prevent future tragedies.
Today, Farm Safety 4 Just Kids has over 130 chapters across the United States and Canada. These volunteers conduct farm safety days in their local communities. In addition, ten outreach coordinators travel ten states teaching youth and their families about farm safety. The organization researches, creates, and offers various educational resources and materials about various farm safety topics.
