Minnesota Farm Bureau Ag in the Classroom

Farm Bureau members attending the Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) Annual Meeting November 19-21 in Bloomington participated in an Agriculture in the Classroom activities at local elementary schools.

The MFBF Promotion and Education Committee in conjunction with the MFBF Young Farmers and Ranchers Committee and county Farm Bureau leaders worked with first, third and fourth graders in Poplar Bridge Elementary and Washburn Elementary Schools in Minneapolis.

The 24 leaders read “How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World” and conducted activities to help students gain a better understanding of agriculture. The Minnesota Farm Bureau Foundation sponsored classroom book donations and apples for the project.

The Minnesota Farm Bureau Foundation mission is to provide opportunities for supporters of agriculture to invest in people and programs focused on supporting active farmers and agriculturalists, better connecting agriculture to consumers and serving rural communities.
