Ag-Venture Mission

Ag-Venture is a “hands-on” learning experience teaching third grade students in Hillsborough County, FL about the importance of agriculture. Our goal is to help them develop an understanding of where food comes from and the impact agriculture has in their daily lives.

How Ag-Venture Works

Ag-Venture takes place at the agriculture complex within the Florida State Fairgrounds. Students are divided into groups and given a bright colored “cowboy” hat. The hats not only keep track of the different groups, but it sets the tone for an “AG” day! The tours consist of 5 stations representing different aspects of agriculture with a variety of hands-on activities. Schools will be assigned to a tour that will have a balance of plant and animal science. Students will need to bring a packed lunch.

The cost for this educational experience is $4.00 per student, parent or chaperone. Teachers are free.

Registration
