Upcoming Teacher Workshops and Farm Tours

Florida Agriculture in the Classroom has 2 more Workshop/Farm Tours planned for January. The first one will be on Monday January 6th in Bartow, FL. They chose that date because many school districts in this area have a teacher work day. It will be a 1 day workshop, with the classroom teaching in the morning and farm tour in the afternoon. They are planning on visiting a phosphate manufacturing facility and a fruit packing plant.  

The second workshop will be on Friday January 17th in Ocala, FL. This date is an in-service day for many school districts. This will also be a 1 day workshop, with plans on visiting an equine rehabilitation facility and fruit grower.  Keep posted for more information. Registration will be open the week after Thanksgiving break.
