For the first time in three years, educators will gather in person for the annual Agriculture in the Classroom Conference. Join us in Ventura, at the Ventura Beach Marriott on September 22-24, 2022, to make agriculture come alive in classrooms throughout California.
The goal: learn exciting ways to teach K-12 students where their food and fiber come from. The conference includes hands-on activities, farm, and ranch field trips (sneak peek – this involves citrus and school gardens), the ever-popular farmer panel, exhibits, and collaboration with other educators. Dynamic presenters and speakers enhance the experience and make the Ag in the Classroom Conference a must-attend event!
“This has been the BEST conference I have been to. Best learning, most engaging, and welcoming!”
– 2019 Conference Attendee
” Why I enjoy Ag in the Classroom: for the expansion of awareness that is generated and that in turn enables the students to learn more about their environment (earth), and their place in it. Students always gain insights and appreciation for agriculture’s role in our daily lives.”
– 2018 Conference Attendee
Attendees will explore California’s prolific food and fiber industry and enrich their current curriculum at the same time! Participants will receive teaching resources aligned to California Academic Standards. The annual event will energize classroom teachers, administrators, afterschool coordinators, and community volunteers to bring agriculture into their classrooms and programs.
