We are excited to present this upcoming Health and Wellness Teacher Workshop on July 21 & 22, 2016 at the Ball State Field Station and Environmental Center. The Health and Wellness Teacher Workshop is a free two-day program worth 16 Professional Growth Plan points for K-5 educators and administrators interested in the academic and health benefits of connecting children with nature.
A farmer network initiated in March 2015 by Purdue Extension is seeking new participants. Purdue Extension of Delaware and Madison Counties is coordinating the network for those interested in local and regional food production, with a focus on diversified, specialty crop, and small- to mid-scale farm owners and operators marketing their products direct to consumers and to local and regional buyers. Beginning or aspiring farmers are highly encouraged to participate.
