2017 Foundation Activity Books Are Here!

Wait No More! The 2017 edition of New York Agriculture Activity Books – Touching Our Lives Every Day are now available!

For the past several months, we have received numerous calls for the Foundation’s Ag Activity Book.  There was such a demand, that we ran out!  Unfortunately, we were unable to send you the books you requested!  A dilemma to say the least, but one with a positive undertone.  Initially a grant from the New York State Attorney General allowed us to reach more than 336,000 children, and adults with the first printing of the Ag Activity Book, and second and third editions reached another 26,000.   We now have a full inventory of 10,000 copies available at a discounted cost (effective July 1, 2017) of 30 cents per copy, which is due to the tremendous support of many.  This represents a 25% reduction in cost, which was a result of our generous supporters.

If you haven’t had the opportunity to explore our 32-page Ag Activity Book, “New York Agriculture – Touching Our Lives Every Day”, then you have a fun learning experience to plan for in the near future!   This Ag Activity Book contains puzzles, games, matches, crossword puzzles, and much more.  Each page is filled with facts about NY Agriculture.  What a great way to learn and have fun for anyone from fourth grade to adults.  Plus, the full-color centerfold is all about New York agricultural production, which can be easily removed and used as a separate reference!

The support for this printing includes:

Distinguished Partner:  DuPont Pioneer

Sponsor:  The Northeast Agricultural Education Foundation

Advocate:  Stewart’s Shops and Farm Credit AgEnhancement

Supporter:  Cornell Agricultural Outreach and Education

We cannot thank our supporters enough for this demonstration of their commitment to agricultural education!  We need to expand this group of supporters, as we develop the understanding of agriculture throughout the New York population.
