LEARNING

ABOUT

Over the past several years, the Foundation has worked on an e-Learning initiative focused on providing an overview of the U.S. agricultural system. The content is dynamic and largely video-narrated by farmers, ranchers and growers from across the United States telling their stories within agriculture. Our e-Learning modules, supportive resources, and augmented reality videos are valuable in a variety of learning environments to bring understanding and an appreciation for the importance of agriculture in feeding our ever-growing world population. Our Homebound Learning has reached teachers, state educators, and university professors in all 50 states, becoming an instrumental addition to virtual classrooms nationally.
