This summer, the University of Illinois Extension is teaching people why they can't live without agriculture. One of the first "lessons" will be held tomorrow in Aledo, called "Farm in the Park."
Teresa Kirwan is the Program Coordinator for Agriculture Education in Mercer County. She works with kids in 4-H and visits schools, teaching students about farming and how it affects them. For example, when asked where milk comes from, most tell her, the grocery store.
