Summer Ag Institute Educates the Educators Attendees of this year’s Summer Ag Institute toured school garden projects at two elementary schools; visited a creamery to see how cheese is made; stopped by a lavender farm and ate lunch at an Amish and Mennonite-inspired restaurant and artists community. They also learned about soils, pests, mapmaking and renewable energy. Most of all, these teachers discovered that learning about agriculture is both important and fun!
