From Farm to Football
AITC is once again working with Hickman's Family Farms to bring classrooms across the state this exciting program. Designed to be used in any classroom, this program allows students to learn about where their food comes from directly from the people who produce it. This year's pen pals include a pig farmer, egg farmer, and vegetable grower. Registration begins July 9th. 

Farm Friday Fun with Arizona Agriculture
Learn about where your food comes first hand! Each month classrooms will learn about one of Arizona's agricultural commodities. Through this digital curriculum package, teachers will receive a profile on an Arizona farm family, facts about the commodity of the month, a short video about the month's crop, and a lesson plan. NEW to the program this year, classrooms will receive a Farm Friday Fun Poster and Farmer Stickers to track Arizona Agriculture. Students will each receive a Fruit and Veggie Ag Mag and Arizona Specialty Crop Ag Mag, Be sure to sign-up for this FREE program by completing this FORM.
