WHAT IS AN
An Educator works to increase ag literacy through implementing standards-based lessons culminating in an on-farm experience.
Responsibilities include but are not limited to:
- Ensuring students are aware of safety rules
- Preparing students for what they'll experience on the farm
- Delivering lesson plans (provided by Farm Camp) to create base level knowledge of the farm operation
- Communicating with Ag Host(s) to ensure a successful event
Types of Farm Camps
Single Stop Farm Camp
A Single Stop Farm Camp is just how it sounds. One Classroom + One Farm or Agribusiness = A Single Stop Farm Camp.
Farm Camp Field Day
A Farm Camp Field Day requires a coordinator and brings together multiple classrooms and multiple farms or agribusinesses for a day of agricultural experiences.
