Foundation Ag Fact Calendars are on their way to the Classrooms!
The 2018-19 NYFB Foundation Agricultural Fact School Calendars have all been mailed or hand-delivered to more than 5,500 third-grade classrooms and individuals who possess an agricultural education mindset. The sponsors that have supported this program should be thanked by each of us within the agricultural community. They are fostering the feeding of New York’s third grade students with a diet rich in agricultural education, one bite at a time, as they discover a new ag fact each and every day!
Every month as well as the inside cover were sponsored by a variety of agriculture organizations and businesses, which included: NYS Apple Country, NY Pork Producers, NY School Nutrition Association, Christmas Tree Farmers Association of New York, Nutrien Ag Solutions, Empire State Potato Growers, NY State Maple Foundation, NYS Turfgrass Association, Harness Horse Breeder of NYS, American Dairy Association Northeast, NY Corn & Soybean Growers Association and the NY Sire Stakes. Several county Farm Bureaus have set up a local distribution network through members so they can build a bridge into the classrooms of their localities. A great tool to connect agriculture to the classrooms!
