Thank you for recently attending a “Leading Kids to Ag Knowledge” workshop. We appreciate your willingness to share accurate agricultural information with local elementary school students.
One of the books we’ve chosen to help you deliver this message is “Right This Very Minute,” the 2020 winner of the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture’s (AFBFA) “Book of the Year” Award. Right This Very Minute is a table-to-farm book about food and farming. The book and accompanying educator’s guide are appropriate for K-2nd graders.
Choose any of the lessons (briefly described below) in the educator’s guide then work with your county Farm Bureau to schedule a presentation and order related resources. Find contact information for your county on the Contact Us page.
