Farm 2 Table Field Trips

Hello teachers!
Thank you for your interest in our Farm 2 Table field trips that take place inside the Agriculture Discover Center on the Fairgrounds.
The program is designed to educate students K-5th about agriculture and how food comes from the farm and ends up on their table. Each session offers three age-appropriate lessons to students keeping with the theme of the month. Learning is fostered through interactive crafts, games, and activities that will keep students engaged until the end!

Registration for Spring 2024 has ended. If you wish to be notified of future F2T registrations or other Agricultural Education opportunities, please fill out the form below to be added to our email list.
