Agrilinks, Ag Educators Corner: “Agricultural Service Learning Connects Students and Communities”

In our ongoing relationship with Agrilinks, InnovATE has developed a new feature, the Ag Educator’s Corner. This series of monthly blog posts provides insight & tips to agricultural educators.

In the most recent installment to our Ag Educators Corner blog series, Greg Schneider, an Agriculture teacher and Future Farmers of America (FFA) adviser at Greensburg Community Schools in Greensburg, IN, shares about his experience serving in those roles the past 20 years. The key to his unique teaching method is taking his curriculum and combining it with hands-on projects for his students, that also address community needs.

The service-learning projects he has developed cover multiple project areas for students with diverse agricultural interests. Some of the projects cover: landscaping, natural resource management, horticulture, agribusiness, and animal science.
