K-5 students enjoyed a "barn on wheels" during a visit from the Agventure Barn Tour. The Agriculture Education Partnership of Sangamon, Menard, and Logan Counties is an organization that was formed by multiple entities, including the Sangamon County Farm Bureau, who saw the need for agriculture education. These entities joined efforts to hire an agriculture literacy coordinator to carry out the AITC programs and educate students in Sangamon, Menard, and Logan counties about agriculture. The Agventure Barn Tour gave students the opportunity to see and pet live farm animals.
