Agriculture in the Classroom Workshop January 19

Attention agriculture friends in NE Iowa! Do you respect our farmers? Do you love agriculture? Do you enjoy being with kids? Do you have some free time to work with children in the classroom? Then this event is perfect for you! Join us for an Ag in The Classroom volunteer free workshop January 19 at the NICC Calmar Dairy Center.

Howard County Farm Bureau and Iowa Agriculture Literacy Foundation have partnered with NICC Calmar Dairy to host an Agriculture in the Classroom County Contacts Workshop Friday, January 19, 2018. There will be a 9 a.m. optional tour of the NICC Robotic Dairy Operation and the new Beef Learning Facilities. The workshop will begin at 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Northeast Iowa Community College Dairy Center 1527 Iowa 150, Calmar, IA 52132.

Come and meet other Ag in the Classroom contacts from northeast Iowa, where we will work together, brainstorm and develop creative and fun ideas to implement Agriculture Education in our area schools. You’ll leave with ready-to-use lessons information and multiple resources to help encourage agriculture interest in local youth. This year we will be incorporating technology resources so bring your laptop, tablet or smartphone!

Who is invited? Anyone currently involved in county AITC programs and those interested in learning more are encouraged to attend! This is a great opportunity to share your farming experiences with our future generations.

So, grab your friends and let’s make learning a fantastic journey in 2018! Lunch will be provided.
