Agriculture Literacy Week (ALW) registration opens on October 3, and we need YOU! During ALW, volunteers throughout the state read a book with an accurate and engaging theme about agriculture in kindergarten through second grade classrooms. It is an opportunity for all types of Pennsylvania agriculturalists and Foundation supporters to be the face of agriculture in K-2 classrooms across the Commonwealth. Afterward, the book is donated to the classroom’s teacher to use for activities and agriculture themes throughout the year.
ALW 2023 will take place March 13 – 17, 2023.
If you would like to get involved, identify your local elementary school and contact them about ALW. Invite a specific classroom of grades K-2 to participate with you, and let them know the program is about 30 minutes long. Once you are registered, you can make a $10.00 donation to cover the price of the ALW book, which will then be donated to the school’s library.
The deadline to register for this week of agriculture literacy is January 10, 2023. The Foundation will begin sending out materials by the end of February.
