As younger generations of Virginians grow up removed from the farm, connecting children to agriculture has never been more important.
Each year more than 2,000 volunteers help Virginia youth connect with agriculture through reading and other fun activities.
Have your children ever wondered why pigs play in mud? Or why corn has hair? Well now they can get their answers—directly from a real farmer.
Virginia Agriculture in the Classroom is offering free activity resource kits to educators as they begin the 2021-22 school year.
Virginia Agriculture in the Classroom has awarded 62 grants to 44 Virginia localities for the 2020-21 school year. Funding will be allocated to provide 22,000 youth with agriculture experiences related to gardening, animal agriculture, STEM, health, nutrition and leadership development.
