Grown For You debuts new mobile classroom

WALTERS, Okla._Students learned all about Oklahoma agriculture in a unique and fun way Wednesday.

The trailer classroom made its grand debut at Walters Elementary School where fourth and fifth graders watched videos, played, games and listened to presentations. All of the fun is centered around the importance of Oklahoma farming. Several organizations came together to create the trailer, which is part of a program called "Grown For You" and it's free to all schools.

"We are teaching about agriculture, the importance of farming, and we are highlighting a lot of the products that come from Oklahoma," said Margaret Ann Kinder, Cotton County Farm Bureau Representative.

The Farm Bureau plans to take it all over the state of Oklahoma and Kinder said with the growing world population and only 2% involved in agriculture business, agricultural education is essential.
