Mark your calendars! Cook County Farm Bureau’s 2023 Summer Ag Institute (SAI) will be held June 19-22, 2023.

In addition to having first-hand agricultural experiences during this year’s SAI, educators will be given resources to help them integrate ag into all aspects of their classroom’s curriculum from the Illinois Farm Bureau’s Ag in the Classroom program. Participants will be able to earn 30 hours of PDCH and 2 graduate credit hours through the University of St. Francis over the course of four days.


Our 2023 SAI will include two days of ag education and learning opportunities at the Cook County Farm Bureau office in Countryside and two days of traveling, featuring an overnight stay. Hop on our agricultural tour bus and relax while traveling to visit educational agricultural locations, such as local prominent agribusinesses, working farms, and more.


Check our website in January for more information about this year’s SAI, including registration cost and tour locations. We hope to see you there!
