2017 Annual Agricultural Literacy Program

This year's book for the annual Agricultural Literacy Program is "Corn" by Gail Gibbons.  This delightfully illustrated book shares information on the history, the production and the uses of corn.  The Educator Resource Guide features related  activities and lessons, a letter from the author, notes from the UNH contributor, plus an introduction to GMOs.  We invite you to purchase the book and guide for $6 so that you can share it with a local classroom.  They can be picked up at the Farm Bureau in Concord or mailed for an additional $2.50 per set.   Email us if you would like us to send some your way.
