Travis County Kids Enjoy Science of Agriculture Days

2012 Eat a Rainbow Crows Nest
On two beautiful fall days, students from low income Travis County schools visited Crow’s Nest Farm for an exciting hands-on introduction to agriculture.  Interactive exhibits taught students about the production and use of corn, how to milk a cow, about how land use affects erosion and ground water quality, and about Texas insects.  In a fun Junior Master Gardener lesson called “Eat a Rainbow”, Travis County Master Gardeners taught students about the health benefits of eating a wide (and colorful) variety of fruits and vegetables.  The 2012 Science of Agriculture days were coordinated by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension’s 4H Agent, Cory Talley.  Watch a video of the event here.
