A $7,500 Ag Tag education grant from the Kentucky Department of Agriculture made summer learning more meaningful for several hundred youth in the Kentucky Boys and Girls Clubs. Funds and teaching resources were awarded to nine clubs for their garden and cooking programs. KyAEC facilitated the grant, resource distribution, and several day programs for clubs, which included a chance to visit the Mobile Science Activity Centers.
