Ag Ambassadors Back in Classrooms

(Fond du Lac) Envision Greater Fond du Lac’s Ag Ambassador in the Classroom program is teaching thousands of kids inside and outside of the county about where their food is coming from. Amy Ries is the Director of Agricultural Programs for Envision. She says during the pandemic they couldn’t get into classrooms, but the program is back on track and from September through December they will have seen thousands of kids in classrooms. Ries says some kids they see grow up on a farm and have a pretty good idea about what goes on there, but the majority of kids they see in classrooms grow up in the city and aren’t as familiar about agriculture. She says they all end up learning something by the time they are done. The program benefits from fundraisers like Envision’s Holiday Gift Box program which runs through November 27th. More details about that are available on the Envision website.
