AGtivities and Education
2022 Update is Pending
The Arizona Farm Bureau Ag in the Classroom (AITC) Program is bringing education and hands-on learning to Roots N’ Boots Queen Creek! This FREE activity booth will allow both children and adults to experience the diversity of Arizona agriculture through interactive learning stations. With most people being 3-4 generations removed from that farm, this is a unique experience to bring people back to the farm and their food. Be sure to visit each day of Roots N’ Boots for a unique experience, fun activities, and lot of giveaways!
