The program was focused toward approximately 300, 4th grade youth in all Jackson County public, private, special needs schools and home school programs. This year, due to COVID, District 11 County Extension Agents teamed up to develop 11 different virtual programs designed for kids in 4th and 5th grades. AgriLife Extension created videos and put together other activities to use in teaching the youth about where their food comes from. The Agents on this District 11 School Programming team have created some great educational tools. We have tried to use local resources on these commodities where we could.
