You can make a difference

If you are passionate about agriculture and want to help children understand the importance of farms, we need you!

Our Ag in the Classroom (AITC) presentations reach about 3,500 students in about 150 classrooms each year… but only with the help of volunteers. 1st-4th grade AITC presentations are delivered to classrooms in February. 5th grade presentations are conducted in late November through mid-December.

Other Volunteer Opportunities

Would you like to help, but prefer working behind the scenes? We often have projects requiring lots of hands-on support, such as inventorying/organizing/assembling resource kits, or counting/cutting/bundling materials. Contact Rhodora at for more information.

Teacher resources are available by request to teachers in DeKalb County, Illinois only. Requesters are responsible for pick-up and return of items from our office. Items will not be shipped or delivered. Dismiss
