“Have you ever had the uncontrollable urge to disk your field?” is the opening question on a new short video by Water Rocks!, a statewide campaign to help educate Iowans about water and their environment. Water Rocks! is affiliated with the Iowa Learning Farms program and often works in concert with it to conduct outreach and education to Iowans of all ages.
The “official” launch date for the Water Rocks! program is September 3. However, you can get a peek at some of the videos such as Restless Tillage Syndrome, Cover Crop Vaccine, Dreams (the story of a girl wanting to farm like her father) and The Beach at www.waterrocks.org. You can also view the videos on the Water Rocks! YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/WaterRocksISU.
Coming soon will be additional videos asking “What’s in your Water?” featuring ducks, more pirate videos and various water-related music videos. In addition to the videos, the Water Rocks! team has developed enhanced learning activities for youth of various ages and the webpage with the videos goes deeper into the content of the videos.
