Ag Literacy Week

In celebration of National Agriculture Week (March 20-24, 2023), volunteers throughout the state will read a book with an agricultural theme to second graders. Students and teachers will also benefit from hands-on lessons and receive follow up activities. The book will be given to the school library with a bookplate recognizing the donor and NY Ag Literacy Week. 2,000 books were donated last year while thousands of second graders participated in fun and educational activities.

Agricultural Literacy Week: March 20-24, 2023

The selected book is Tomatoes for Neela by Padma Lakshmi.
