Why teach agriculture?
For the first time in U.S. history, more families are living in cities than in rural areas. Consequently, children are disconnected from the natural world and agriculture.
What is Agriculture in the Classroom?
KFAC is a statewide educational program providing resources, training and support to schools, educators and volunteers so that they can meaningfully connect children to agriculture. We do this through AITC-designed lessons and resources, educator training workshops, newsletters, magazines, teacher awards, and volunteer projects and initiatives.
KFAC serves over 45,000 individuals annually.
Who pays for Agriculture in the Classroom?
The program is funded through donations. Kansas Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
