Hello and welcome to the Farm to Classroom Professional Development Program! We are so happy you have found us and we are excited to be with you on your agricultural literacy journey!
The goal of Farm to Classroom: Agriculture in the Classroom Professional Development Program is to strengthen the teaching of agricultural literacy in K-12 classrooms. Agricultural literacy is vitally important when youth are on average three to four generations removed from the farm and lack understanding of the important role that farming plays in their daily lives. We strive to help educators reach their agricultural literacy goals within their classroom and provide them with the resources to do so.
