Activities by Day
Ready to celebrate ag for an entire week? Here are some fun activities to get started!
Make a farm-to-table meal with your family.
Volunteer at your local school and plan an activity with a classroom to teach kids about the importance of agriculture. (examples: make a compost bin for them to observe in their classroom, or do this egg shell seed growing experiment)
Research agricultural issues affecting your region.
Contact your legislator and remind them of the importance of supporting farm initiatives.
Share what agriculture means to you in a photo on social media—whether it’s the ingredients for your dinner, a rural field, or a busy market. Use the hashtag #FoodforLife
Throw a cook-off party with friends. Try to incorporate ingredients your state is known for, i.e. pork, apples, almonds, beef, corn, etc.
Check out local farms or dairies in your area that offer tours. Visit with friends or family, and learn how they produce, sell and market their food.
