Close Encounters with Agriculture is an award winning program offered each year to Montgomery County fourth grade students. Since 1993, over 60,000 students have participated in this hands-on educational program designed to teach students about modern agriculture, maintaining a healthy environment and leading a healthy lifestyle.
