Adult Ag-Ucation

The Fairgrounds Agriculture Education Team has worked for the past five years on a children's Farm 2 Table program.

These programs are geared towards children in grades K-5 and focus on exploring the role agricultre plays in our lives. Stemming from the success of this program the Team has developed Adult Ag-ucation. Designed in the same spirit of Farm 2 Table, Adult Ag-ucation will explore agriculture topics in an innovative and hands on way.

Classes will take place in the state-of-the-art Agriculture Discovery Center. This 60,000 square foot facility on the Fairgrounds opened in 2014. The building features interactive exhibits as well as stalling facilities for livestock shows. The Farm Focus room is a classroom like setting that will provide the back-drop for Adult Ag-ucation classes.
