Ag in the classroom is back in the classroom and it is expanding to Jr. High.
Rebecca Livingston is the Agriculture Literacy Program coordinator for Christian & Montgomery Counties with the University of Illinois Extension.
The program reached over 1,000 students in 51 classrooms in September. Livingston says this is about average, but also impressive for the amount of uncertainty in the air.
Livingston is currently teaching kids about pumpkins and the cool things you can do with them, as she says that Illinois is the pumpkin capitol of the world.
Ag in the classroom is looking for help and donations.
