What Is Ag-Venture?
AG-Venture is a free, “hands-on” educational program designed to teach young people the importance of agriculture and “where the food comes from.”
Did you know that many young people think that their milk, eggs, and other food items originate in cartons sold in the grocery store.
We are interested in teaching these children that the grocery store is only a part of the food process that brings the animal from the barnyard to the table.
There are several “hands-on” activities that this exhibit offers, which are listed below. Children are encouraged to come participate and then take their creations home with them!
Ag-Venture Volunteers Needed!
Our “AG-Venture Program needs your help!
We are looking for service organizations, clubs, or groups of students that would be willing to sign up for a shift (or several) to work in our AG-Venture during the Fair.
This great opportunity is being offered to adults, students, clubs, or organizations so that they can earn community service hours and, more importantly, become eligible for a scholarship from the Pensacola Interstate Fair.
If you are interested, please apply online (see below) by October 1st.
Shifts will be assigned on a first come first served basis so be sure to apply now in order to receive the shift you prefer. Confirmation will be sent to you.
Volunteers Make It Happen!
