KFB's Education Mission
We understand that no gender, age or vocation should be avoided when educating about agriculture. The vast majority of Americans are several generations removed from the direct experience of farming. Our education outreach efforts encompass children to state legislators and all those in between. Through a variety of programs, tours, conferences and media, Kansas Farm Bureau impacts Kansas agriculture daily and improves the perception of agriculture.
KFB's Education News
Back to school is an exciting time: New backpack, new shoes, new pencils! But back to school also brings a new chance to connect students to where their food comes from. The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture wants to be the easy button for educators and volunteers when it comes to ag education resources.
The White-Reinhardt Mini-Grant Program funds projects that will increase agricultural literacy. County and state Farm Bureaus may apply for grants of up to $500 for classroom education programs for grades K-12 in order to initiate new ag literacy programs or expand existing programs. Grants are available on a competitive basis.
Kansas Farm Bureau is passionate about providing accurate information about agriculture.
The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture has awarded 13 $500 mini-grants to communities across the nation. The grants are awarded through the Foundation’s White-Reinhardt Fund for Education program. The grants are allocated through county and state Farm Bureaus and are used to create new agricultural literacy projects or expand existing agricultural literacy efforts.
