Would you like to have a farmer in your classroom? Speakers are available for any grade and can talk to your students about what it’s like to work in agriculture.

The California Farm Water Coalition and the California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom have partnered on an exciting program that brings farmers to your classroom. Your students can meet a farmer and hear about animals, food production, technology, tractors and machinery as well as business topics for older students thinking about a career.

Complete the form below and select the topic or topics of interest to your class and we will schedule a classroom visit from a farmer or a farm-related expert in your area. Presentations are tailored to each class level, last from 30 to 45 minutes, and give students a chance to participate in a lively discussion and ask questions about what goes on at a farm.
