Our very lives depend on clean, safe, reliable sources of water. How do farmers work to protect water quality and use water efficiently while growing the crops and raising the livestock which feed us all? Via farm and agribusiness tours, expert speakers, and ag literacy resource exploration, this institute will give teachers tools and background knowledge to broaden students’ understanding of agriculture as it relates to water use, conservation, and quality.
Teachers can earn 30 CPDUs or 2 hours of graduate credit while exploring ways to tie local agriculture to the curriculum across grades and subject areas.
Class meeting dates will be:
June 8, 9, 10, 11, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Complete and submit the form below to register. The registration fee for all participants is $100. Those seeking graduate credit will also need to register and pay $100 per credit hour through University of St. Francis.
