This summer, White County Ag in the Classroom will be partnering with Wayne, Wabash, Lawrence and Edwards counties for the 2018 Summer Ag Institute. This year’s theme is “Agriculture… From East to West”. We will be learning about agriculture throughout southern Illinois from June 12-14. 

Tentative tours include Consolidated Grain & Barge in Mt. Vernon, IN, Juncker Outdoor Power & Equipment, river barge tour, Excel Bottling Company, Marcoot Jersey Creamery, Maschoffs Farms, Country Bob’s Seasoning Tour, and classroom instruction from Illinois Ag in the Classroom. 

The cost of the tour is $150, which includes lunch each day and transportation to each of the tours. Each day will begin at 7:30 a.m. and we will finish the day around 6:00 p.m. Teachers will be able to earn 22.5 Professional Development Credit Hours for participating.
