Professional Development for Educators

Every summer we offer a free workshop for eductors Prek-12 to experience agriculture up close and in person.  Our two day workshop consists of field trips to farms and ag businesses, presentations by commodity groups, and a workshop with Illinois Ag in the Classroom.  Educators leave with real knowledge of agriculture and with lots of resources and ideas to help them integrate agriculture into their lesson plans.

This year's workshop will be:

June 5th and 6th, 2024

Contact our ag in the classroom coordinator for more information.
