What's New with AITC?

School is back in session!  Contact our Education Coordinator, Chelsea Icenogle, to schedule your classroom, community program or local event.  Some of the featured lessons for this school year  include "Pollinators", "What's on my Pizza?", and "Town Mouse, Country Mouse." 

Pollinators:  The pollinator lesson will include the opportunity for students to view our honey bee and butterfly collections, and our insect collections.  They will learn why pollinators are beneficial and what role they plan in agriculture.

"What's on My Pizza?": The pizza lesson will incorporate all of the different crops and animals that are needed to produce and grow the ingredients on my pizza.  The lesson can be used to meet math, geography and science learning standards.

"Town Mouse, Country Mouse":  This lesson will focus on urban communities and ways that urban agriculture can benefit communities. 

Stop in to see the AITC Book Barn at the Sorento Fall Festival or at the Marcoot Creamery Fall Festival!
