California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom

Ag in the Classroom Support of Local Programs

We appreciate the efforts of the volunteers and County Farm Bureaus from throughout the state, who work to teach students about were their food comes from. This is done by in many ways, including hosting educational events for students and/or teachers, disseminating our educational resources and visiting classrooms. We would not be able to reach the amount of students and educators that we do without you!
