Affiliate Members and Local Contacts

Many Agriculture in the Classroom programs are implemented by local and regional organizations. The Iowa Agriculture Literacy Foundation supports these local and regional organizations by providing resources and facilitating a network that seeks to improve agricultural literacy — awareness, knowledge, and appreciation — among PreK-12 teachers and their students.
