About Us

Mission & Vision


Increase agricultural literacy through K-12 education.


Agriculture is valued by ALL.

What is an agriculturally literate person?

An agriculturally literate person is defined as someone who understands and can communicate the source and value of agriculture as it affects our quality of life.

How We Do This Work

Agriculture in the Classroom (AITC) programs seek to improve student achievement by applying authentic, agricultural-based content as the context to teach core curriculum concepts in science, social studies, language arts and nutrition. By encouraging teacher to embed agriculture into their classroom, AITC cultivates an understanding and appreciation of the food and fiber system that we all rely on every day.
