LET’S GRO & Pollinate

Professional Development – July 29th, 2024

Join MAEF and Anne Arundel County Farm Bureau at this Summer workshop focusing on incorporating agriculture into your work with youth. Did you know 1/3 of the total human diet is derived directly from insect pollinated plants? Come learn how to incorporate pollinators and their relationship to agriculture (and our food!) in your work! Get a behind the scenes tour of Homestead Garden, hear from engaging guest speakers, and leave with valuable resources to use with your students!

We are hiring

We are hiring part-time teachers across the state for our Mobile Science Lab program, which brings hands-on science experiments related to agriculture to elementary students across Maryland. Candidates from across the state  are encouraged to apply. Contact Tonya Wible at twible@maefonline.com for more information. Applications are now being accepted for the 24/25 school year.

What do we do?

Dedicated to increasing agricultural literacy and agricultural education, MAEF is a nonprofit organization with programs serving pre-kindergarten through post-secondary audiences. MAEF signature programs include professional development courses for teachers; mobile science labs; mobile agricultural showcases and Maryland FFA. Funded by the Maryland “ag tag” license plate revenues, gifts, grants and program fees, MAEF promotes the importance of agriculture in everyone’s daily lives.
