Though much more visible in today’s “eat-local” culture, experiences with agriculture outside of popular farmers market venues is relatively scarce among urbanites. City dwellers are rarely tuned in to the hard work that helps turn so much of our state’s economy. From timber to crawfish, cattle ranching to soy and rice cultivation, our collective dependence on agriculture should not be underestimated. So what’s the best form of education campaign, sure to bring out the young and old alike? A big ol’ party. Visitors can tour seven portals that explore various facets of agriculture, from agronomic crops and insects to farm animals and good nutrition. Kids will have a chance to make rubbings of insects and leaf stamps, dig for worms and sweet potatoes, and make wildlife tracks in the sand. And don’t forget to grab some fresh ice cream from the Dairy Store! Free. LSUAgCenter.com/AgMagic.
