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 to spark meaningful connections between classrooms and Kansas agriculture. We accomplish this through standards-based lesson plans and resources, educator workshops, teacher recognition, and grant-funded 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.
