Farm Smart Classroom Assistance Funds
It is the highlight of many students' year when they get a chance to enjoy a day with Farm Smart. The local program is located at the University of California Desert Research and Extension Center and offers hands-on tours of their working farm. Students learn about agriculture and the ways that agriculture affects their daily lives. And everyone goes home with a bag of fresh produce they picked themselves from the farm!
With the significant budget cuts at schools around the state, even the cost of bussing students to the farm is more than some classes can afford. Farm Bureau didn't want to see students miss out on this terrific experience, so we started a fund to assist classes with the cost of bussing.
If you are a teacher or administrator and would like more information on the scholarship fund, contact Farm Smart at 760- 356-3067 or reach at or 760-352-3831 for details!
Scholarship Application Deadline: varies year to year, typically late April or early May
