Discover the science of agriculture by learning about grains and produce operations in Kansas during the next Lunch & Learn program, which will be presented by the 50 Department of the Johnson County Park and Recreation District in late March.

Lunch & Learn – Behind the Scenes of Local Agriculture includes lunch and a presentation, which will let participants learn about the skills and machinery local farmers are currently utilizing. 

This Lunch & Learn is a companion program to a April 16 day trip called Hard Hats & Shovels which will take travelers to Topeka to tour one of Cargill, Inc.'s  largest grain elevators, and visit Rees’ Fruit Farm.
