The popular “Adventures in Agriculture,”a free event hosted by members and partners of the Rutherford County agricultural community, is set for Saturday, April 8, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Lane Agri-Park in Murfreesboro. The host venue is located at 315 John Rice Boulevard, just past Sam’s Club.

Designed for all ages, Adventures in Agriculture was created to educate the local community and beyond about agriculture. Farmers will be on hand to share their knowledge of animals, crops, homegrown foods, handmade products, and more with parents and children.

“There will be plenty of hands-on activities to teach families about agriculture’s impact on our everyday lives,” says Charlotte Peay, a leader of the educational event. “We’re thankful for the many people who work together and donate their time to make Adventures in Agriculture happen. We hope everyone will leave with fun memories and a greater understanding of farming.” 

Children attending the event can pick up a passport to have stamped as they visit the different “adventures” and receive a prize when completed. Both children and adults can play “My American Farm” inside the facility and have the opportunity to learn heritage skills such as butter-making and spinning yarn. Parents, meanwhile, can talk with Master Gardeners about how to grow vegetables in a backyard or container garden.

The day will also include live animal exhibits, food displays, gardening information, and more. Refreshments will be available

Additionally, canned food donations will be taken for the Rutherford County Food Bank at registration. The first 25 Rutherford County teachers (with valid IDs) to register will receive $20 gift certificates from a local teacher’s store along with coupons and other teaching resources.
