Kindergarten U

We are now enrolling! Kindergarten U is a week-long "boot camp" where pre-K youth experience what kindergarten will be like. The curriculum models a typical year of kindergarten where the participants read, write, count, explore the sciences, participate in physical exercises, and other fun, educational activities.
Food Safety Plan Sessions
Writing a food safety plan is an important step in the process of implementing Good Agricultural Practices. However, producing an individualized, farm-specific plan can be challenging. Purdue Extension will be hosting four webinar-based sessions that will provide basic food safety plan writing information, as well as give growers an opportunity to ask questions about their own plans.
