Ag In The Classroom

Free programs for your classroom!

Johnson Co. Coordinator: Abby Nichols, 535-8505,

Kindergarden through 6th Grade

Trained volunteers present a 30-45 minute lesson centered around agriculture for your classroom at a time convenient for you and them.  The farm is brought to the class by an actual farmer with “hands-on” agriculture experience, who lives within your area.  Please consider a farmer’s schedule when planning for a classroom presentation.  Many farmers are unavailable in the early fall and spring.  Each volunteer has a variety of lessons they can present, and are willing to tailor programs to your current studies.  Lessons range from where corn and soybeans come from, how the parts of a pizza come from the farm, farm and equipment safety, top Indiana commodities and so much more!

These programs meet Indiana’s Academic Standards.  

By filling out the request form, we will notify a volunteer in your county that you are interested in having an Ag In The Classroom presentation. Click here for an Ag in the Classroom volunteer request form:

 The volunteer will contact you directly to set up a date and time and discuss what topics you would like covered in your class.  If there are multiple teachers in your school that are interested in the program, please try to coordinate one contact.  Once the volunteer has made contact, you may contact them directly in the future to set up classroom visits. 

 Once you have submitted the volunteer request form, please allow two weeks for the volunteer to contact you.  If it has exceeded the two weeks, please call our office at 317-692-7830 to follow up.  Due to the high level of request, we can only accept online reservation forms.
