Farming for Fuel

If you have not yet scheduled your outreach programming (or even if you have!), please consider our newest program, Farming for Fuel.

Farming for Fuel is also being offered at the National Science Center’s Fort Discovery in Augusta, Georgia.  WRDW-TV in Augusta did the following feature on the program last month on their morning news program:
