Helping children foster an awareness and apprecation for the connection between agriculture and the dinner table is an educational goal for us all.

Growing plants has always intrigued children from planting a mother's day gift to growing a garden. Visit Cyberspace Farm to discover why wheat is called the Super Seed. Discover science fair projects that involve agriculture at the homepage of Agricuture is a Science.
