Experience Farm Life for 3 Days!
Our most popular class, The Ag Tour and Seminar - Session 1, is a 3-day, 2 CE units** workshop where agriculture and the classroom collide. The workshops include tours of local farms, dairies, and packing houses, as well as active participation in local farming and gardening techniques. We also have several local and statewide guest speakers attend to discuss the importance of education, nutrition, and agriculture. Overall, this is a great networking opportunity for teachers statewide!
