Summer Ag Institute

Better safe than… sick? Out of concern for the health of our teachers, farmers, their families, and our community during the COVID-19 pandemic, we made the difficult decision to cancel our Summer Ag Institute for 2020. We hope you can join us for SAI in 2021!

K-12 teachers: Earn graduate credit or professional development hours as you explore ways to infuse farm & food understanding into your curriculum. More than 240 area teachers have participated in our SAI. $100 Scholarships Available!

Summer Ag Institute (SAI) participants:

    • Tour local farms and interact with the farmers who raise our food.
    • Visit agribusinesses and investigate career opportunities in agriculture.
    • Examine issues of food production (food safety, environmental protection, etc.) and discuss age-appropriate ways to explore them with students.
    • Develop lessons to incorporate food & farm-related content while addressing learning standards.
