Farms, Organizations, and Agencies engaged in providing agricultural education opportunities, field trips, tours, curriculum, or other resources - you are invited to participate in the 2nd annual Teachers' Night on the Farm on October 16, 2014 at the Baltimore County Ag-Center and Farm Park in Cockeysville. The event, structured as an open house/resource fair, is designed to bring ag-education providers and teachers together in a casual, fun, and informative evening. It is a one-stop shop for teachers to learn what opportunities exist and for providers to make contact with a large number of schools. Last year’s inaugural event was wildly popular with over 25 exhibitors and hundreds of teachers from all over the state attending – some coming all the way from Washington County. The event is free for exhibitors and teachers. Click here for more information.
