Ag in the Classroom
Vermilion County Farm Bureau
If you are still interested in a classroom lesson on popcorn, please email me at AITC.VCFB@Comcast.net to set up a time.
Together, we will read the picture book titled Pumpkin Jack by Will Hubbell. After a short discussion on the life cycle of the pumpkin, students will participate in the main event: building and launching Pumpkin Catapults!
To schedule a classroom lesson, please email Mrs. Buhr at AITC.VCFB@Comcast.net

Vermilion County Agriculture in the Classroom
My name is Missy Buhr and I am so excited to be the new Ag Literacy Coordinator for Vermilion County! I was born and raised on a hog farm in south central Indiana, where my family also grew corn, wheat, and soybeans; not to mention cows, chickens, children and the occasional pet. After graduating from college, I married my husband Andy, and we now live on a grain farm in rural Gifford with our two children.
I have been a second grade classroom teacher for six years and have over seven years experience at the preschool level. I am looking forward to combining two important roles that I love—agriculture and teaching.
I am eager to share this adventure with your students and look forward to meeting you very soon!
