Jackson County Farm Bureau Celebrated National Ag Day and Kentucky Literacy Week

 

In an effort to educate children and consumers about the true value of American agriculture, Kentucky Farm Bureau has successfully used National Ag Day and Kentucky Ag Literacy Week as an opportunity to promote Kentucky Agriculture. Children especially need to understand how agriculture meets their basic needs and enriches all aspects of their lives. Jackson County Farm Bureau Women’s Chair, Phyllis Purvis, and Agency Manager, Brenda Ayers, went to Tyner Elementary School and read an accurate ag book to a group of 4th grade students. The book, entitled “First Peas to the Table,” by Susan Grigsby brought to life the story of how one little girl learned about Thomas Jefferson’s contest "First Peas to the Table" and participated in the contest at her school. This is a wonderful way to reach Kentucky’s youth with factual and valuable agriculture information.
