New York Agriculture in the Classroom is proud to announce Megan and Clayton Kappauf as recipients of the 2023 National Excellence in Teaching About Agriculture Award.
Clayton and Megan Kappauf,
a husband-and-wife team who teach at Oxford Academy and Central School District-Primary School in Oxford, NY, have found creative ways to bring their passion for gardening, food production, and food processing into their classrooms. With the use of equipment such as high tunnels,
dehydrators, and aeroponic grow systems, students are exposed to a variety of different fresh vegetables, fruits, and herbs.
Congratulations Clayton and Megan!
