  • Siouxland Agriculture in the Classroom

    In rural Iowa, we are surrounded by agriculture and its impact on America's economy every day, yet many children in our region are still unsure of the origin of their food. It's not uncommon for today's youth to believe chocolate milk is produced by brown cows—or even more surprising—the grocery store. This growing issue becomes more apparent as each day passes. Thus, Siouxland Agriculture in the Classroom was created.

    A group of individuals who saw the need for increased agriculture education came together to create a non-profit organization to address this issue. We work to lessen the gap between producer and consumer that is so prominent in today's society. We have developed programs to implement agriculture into schools in a seven-county area, and we work to make agriculture a regular part of teachers' curricula. We not only provide classroom lesson plans for instructors, but are also a resource for presentations and in-class activities.

    We are currently accepting applications for the position of Director of Siouxland Agriculture in the Classroom. Interested parties should submit a resume, cover letter and list of references to siouxlandaitc@gmail.com by May 5th. The job description and more details can be found in the attached description.

    Questions can be directed to Dan Winterhof at 712/229-7875 or Melissa Nelson at 402/669-5126.
