To promote understanding and awareness of the importance of agriculture. Our educational programs provide a wealth of opportunities for embedding agriculture, food and natural resources education into the K-12 classroom. Minnesota Ag in the Classroom (MAITC) seeks to improve student achievement by applying authentic agricultural examples to teach core curriculum concepts in science, social studies, language arts, math and nutrition. These programs cultivate an understanding and appreciation of the food and fiber system that we all rely on every day.

Minnesota Department of Agriculture program staff:

Al Withers, MAITC Program Director

Sue Knott, MAITC Education Specialist

Zoe Hastings, Farm to School Project Specialist
