Farm Bureau members across the state are passionate about bringing awareness of agriculture to students who do not live on a farm. Some ways they do this includes in-class demonstrations, using technology for distance learning or hosting field trips for students. Here are two examples of recent agricultural awareness programs with schools.

Seneca County Farm Bureau: Our Ohio... Your Backyard

Seneca County Farm Bureau’s "Our Ohio...Your Backyard" program brought 400 students from throughout the county to the Seneca County fairgrounds March 19. Students moved from station to station learning about different areas of agriculture. Teachers also were provided with a resource kit that included items such as the Farm Bureau children’s literature book of the year.
