Ag Literacy Week - Kentucky Farm Bureau

Ag Literacy Week

 

To celebrate Ag Literacy Week, members of the Lincoln County Farm Bureau Women’s Committee went to each elementary school and read the book “Seeds, Soil, and Sun” to a 1st through 3rd grade class. Each committee member did an activity with the class. One of the activities was a tasting party and sampling examples of roots, stems, flower buds, fruit and leaves (carrots, celery, broccoli, apples, and lettuce).  Another member brought soil for the students to plant beet seeds and then they were given seeds to take home.  Another committee member took soil, cups, and bean seeds and left them with the teacher to plant seeds later, after Spring Break. The book was donated to the school. In addition, the women’s chair is going to each school to introduce the Kentucky Farm Bureau/Mitchell Tolle book, “The Most Wonderful Dream," and donate the book to the library. The women’s chair also shared with schools that Lincoln County Farm Bureau is sponsoring a classroom and showed them how they can apply.

When searching for information about or images of Jefferson County, Kentucky on the internet, one will likely see photos of the Louisville skyline or statistics about it being the most populated county in the state.
