The Peaceful Belly Farm near Boise, Idaho, welcomed more than 250 fifth-graders recently, as part of program to help students understand more about farming and agricultural science. "Farmers are really in touch with the science of their soil, what's happening with their water and who their pollinators are," owner and event organizer Josie Erskine said, adding, "We want to really show these kids that a farm is a huge place of knowledge and science."
