Learn about Oregon agriculture!

Oregon Agriculture in the Classroom is excited to introduce our Learn About Agriculture Subscription Box program. Oregon 3rd-5th grade educators are invited to apply to learn about Oregon agriculture through these fun hands-on lessons. Each month participants will receive a box featuring an agricultural topic and the materials for an associated lesson. Applicants will be selected based on the following criteria: new to network teachers, geographical diversity and application content.
