Harvest season is right around the corner and that means the combines will hit the roads.


Rebecca Livingston is the University of Illinois Agriculture in the Classroom Program Coordinator for Montgomery and Christian Counties and she asks you to be patient when you spot a combine in front of you. 

Otherwise, Livingston has remained busy this summer and will stay that way through the school year as she teaches children from Kindergarten to 5th grade about agriculture. Her main feature, though, is bringing in incubators for baby chickens. She says that is a great way to teach kids about the farm life cycle. 

She also talked about how she is giving farm tours to local classrooms.
