As someone who is involved in agriculture, you understand how important it is to educate others about our industry. It is imperative that they know what we do, how we do it, and how it impacts our daily lives. Seeds of knowledge and curiosity must be planted at a young age. Earth Partners is doing just that…and in a big way! Over the past 6 months, Sarah Kaper, a certified teacher and Director of Earth Partners, has been teaching students about agriculture in classrooms all over Champaign County. On average, 1,000 students per month are experiencing hands-on lessons about agriculture in a realistic and modern way. These lessons are being presented in a manner that conveys truth and builds confidence in modern agriculture. That’s exciting!
While the resources are free to students and teachers, they are not truly “free.” Earth Partners depends on people who deeply care about agriculture to support their educational outreach. Through the end of March, the Grounded in Ag campaign will raise funds in support of Earth Partners for the coming year. Will you join us in support of Earth Partners to help make sure that the students in Champaign County are Grounded in Ag?
