Agricenter International, a 1,000 acre farm, is a non-profit dedicated to agricultural research, education, and conservation. It has a $524 million annual economic impact on the region through its tenants and activities on campus. Agricenter hosts over 1.3 million visitors annually and has educated tens of thousands of students.
Agricenter is the foremost educational venue for formal and informal learning about agriculture, forestry, and natural resources. In a time when many children think their food and clothes come from the store, it is important to educate them about the natural environment so they can become good stewards of the earth’s resources. Agricenter’s educators offer enrichment classes that focus on science, technology and the environment. For schools who need assistance, transportation scholarships are available. Your support is invaluable in Agricenter’s efforts to provide high quality education program.
