Educators & Agriculture
Professional Development Opportunities
Since 1996, Massachusetts Agriculture in the Classroom has offered more than 260 workshops on farms across the state bringing on-farm education experiences to more than 3,000 educators.
Each session offers an in-depth educational overview of one aspect of agriculture with related hands-on activities that helped teachers take agriculture back to their classrooms. Each workshop also includes a farm tour and the opportunity to meet the farmer and learn about work that goes on at the farm. Ten professional development points are offered to teachers for each of the workshops, when they take what they learn back to the classroom and carry out an activity with their students and then send a report.
We plan to continue virtual workshops of 1-1.5 hours, FREE.
When appropriate, we will have 6 hour outdoor farm based on site workshops with opportunity for 10 PDP's.
