Participating teachers will also receive a pdf of the Fruit and Veggie Ag Mag and the Arizona Specialty Crops Ag MagThis year's program will celebrate Arizona's agricultural heritage by partnering with the Arizona Farming and Ranching Hall of Fame to offer farm and ranch profiles from those who have been inducted into the Hall of Fame.
