On The Farm, At The Market Book

Agriculture Literacy Week is March 18th-22nd!


CANCELLED - Ag. Literacy Week

  • Monday, March 16, 2020, 8:00 AM - Friday, March 20@ 5:00 PM

Agriculture Literacy Week is March 16th-20th! The signature book for 2020 is Right This Very Minute by Lisl H. Detlefsen with art by Renee Kurilla. In this book readers find out what farmers are doing right this very minute to ensure we have safe, nutritious and delicious foods when we want them.  

This year our book is geared for K through 3rd grade.

Once your classroom has registered that they would like to participate, a volunteer will contact you to arrange a day and time to come in, read the book and do a activity. The whole program lasts from a 1/2 hour to 45 minutes. In February volunteers will be contacting teachers directly to coordinate dates and times.

In the past some schools have a specific volunteer that has read to them. If you would like to request a specific reader there is an opportunity to do so.

All school requests must be in by January 10th! This allows enough time to order books, supplies and arrange volunteer readers.
