During the fair alone The Ag Learning Center utilizes approximately 500 volunteers. The Ag Learning Center is part of a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization who relies on grant funding and volunteers for successful events.
At a time when less than 2% of Americans are actively involved in farming, each generation is farther removed from agriculture and it's importance. Today's children will become tomorrow's leaders. By impressing upon them the significance of agriculture, we can help to ensure the livelihood of our country for generations to come. With the removal of people from farming, also removed is the knowledge of food and fiber sources for many of our children.
The programs available at the Ag Learning Center strive to educate youth within the Four States area on this importance using fun filled interactive programs, activities, and events.
