Bond County Agriculture in the Classroom sponsored a Chamber of Commerce Lunch ‘n Learn at First Christian Church Wednesday. During the luncheon, Emily Hartmann, secretary and treasurer for Ag in the Classroom, explained more about the organization.
“So, what do we do in the community? We offer classroom presentations. We provide teacher kits and supplies. We have teacher workshops and programs. We work to get grants for school programs and trips. And we also attend community events.”
Attendees enjoyed a meal catered by Wes Pourchot and had the opportunity view lesson plans, education kits and tour the Book Barn. Ag in the Classroom Advisor Karen File also presented the group with a short demonstration on UV light, similar to what kids might learn with their program.
