Finally! After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, we are very excited to host this year's California Agriculture in the Classroom conference for educators… in person!
We'll be heading to Ventura full of energy, information, ideas, and networking for our teachers, volunteers, and community leaders.
Will you renew your support for agricultural education by providing a donation for our conference? Your contribution helps us keep the registration fee low and provides registration scholarships for those who need it. Many do, nearly 50 have applied for a scholarship! The following comment is from a Los Angeles County 3rd-grade teacher, who attended a previous AITC conference but needs support to attend this year.
“I have shared with my fellow teachers that this was the best conference that I have ever attended in all my years of teaching! From the farm visits to the sessions and activities, I have never gained so much new knowledge in one weekend!”
The questions are endless: How will farmers feed our growing population? Why is agriculture important to our economy? Where do strawberries (or any other California commodity) come from and how do they grow? These are just some examples of the topics we tackle at our conference. Educators, and the students they teach, will gain a better understanding of California agriculture and its vital role in our state, country, and the world. Your donation makes this all possible.
I appreciate your previous financial support and hope you will give again.
Thank you for your consideration and I hope to hear from you soon.
