Our Passion

Christa Wright, Agriculture in the Classroom Coordinator

Growing up on a farm I always appreciated the importance of agriculture. I believe that we need to educate our future generation on how agriculture affects our everyday lives. My job as the Agriculture in the Classroom Coordinator gives me the opportunity to spread my passion! We are building awareness of agriculture through education. We are helping children become lifelong learners. We are very proud of our work and I can’t wait to visit a new school with our activities and open their world to agriculture!

Our farmers visit schools and deliver a fresh local breakfast to the students. For more information on this event or any of our other activities please visit our website.
