Promoting Ag in the School Classroom

classroom awaiting students

As students are settling into their new school year, whether it is online, or in person or something in between, the Colorado Foundation for Agriculture is working with teachers across the state to continue its mission of connecting students to their food, fiber, fuel and natural resources.

Often today’s student is at least four generations removed from a farm or ranch. They have misconceptions about agriculture. CFA, through its Agriculture in the Classroom program, aims to change that.
