Support Agriculture in the Classroom

Your gift makes it possible!

Did you grow up on a farm or remember visiting a friend’s or relative’s farm? For many people, memories of life on a farm are a treasured part of their childhood. For others, farming is a way of life that they love and work hard to preserve. However, for most people today, including our children, farm experiences are limited or even non-existent.  That is why, Agriculture in the Classroom (AITC) connects kids to agriculture! 

Kids want to know more about agriculture. It’s fun. It’s cool. In a world of technology, AITC links students to the natural world - to the land, to their food and to Virginia.
