Minnesota Ag in the Classroom
CommonGround Minnesota also had the opportunity to participate in Minnesota Ag in the Classroom's (MAITC) northern teacher tour. The teacher tours allow educators to get a first-hand look into the world of agriculture. Resources, hands-on activities and interactive ideas for integrating agriculture into curriculum are discussed and shared.
The final stop of the MAITC northern teacher tour was at Mistic Berry Farm located near Bemidji, MN. There, teachers were treated to a tour of the strawberry farm, dinner, and more. (Earlier in the tour, teachers visited the LaPorte School Garden and Little Timber Farms, near Blackduck.)
