The mission of Florida Ag in the Classroom is to help Florida's teacher and students develop an understanding of our multifaceted agricultural system and its relationship to our economy, environment, health and quality of life.
In Broward County a group of teachers and volunteers, along with the support of Broward County Farm Bureau, offer several programs and resources for children in learning environments.
Some of the programs include:
The Ag Learning Barn is a traveling exhibit that is used to tell the story about agriculture. These portable structures are used as lending libraries, which will travel to schools on a rotational basis. They are filled with teaching items to enhance the learning of young children (grades Pre-K - 5), which includes: videos, books, activity books, posters, puppets, puzzles, and toys. The teacher may checkout material from the barn to use in their classroom while the barn is at their school.
