Agriculture is Georgia’s largest industry.  It is an important component of the state’s economy and provides one in seven jobs in agriculturally related fields.  However, less than 2% of the population actually lives on the farm and few people have any knowledge of how the food and fiber system works to provide us with food, clothing and shelter. 

 

The purpose of the Georgia Agriculture in the Classroom  is to increase agricultural literacy among children and the general public.  It provides tools for more effective teaching about agriculture and its role in an interdependent society, and to assist Georgia ’s educators in implementing the instruction of agriculture-related concepts in the classroom.

 

This mission is achieved through the activities of county Farm Bureau volunteers in their local communities and through teacher training courses held throughout the state.
