You Can Teach About Agriculture!

At, we received the following letter and would like to share it with you–

California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom is a non-profit organization based in Sacramento, CA. We provide free resources to help teachers educate students about their connection to agriculture. Many free resources are available on our website.

This year, we have an abundance of copies of our full-color student newspaper, “What’s Growin’ On?”. You can see the 11th edition of this newspaper here:  A grant from the Network for a Healthy California has made this project possible.

This newspaper is packed with activities that are aligned to state content standards for 3rd-8th grade students. Thousands of copies are available at no charge if you would like to distribute them to your homeschool groups. 

If interested, please contact–

There are certainly lots of great resources on this site!  A site we didn’t even know about!  How fun to learn about a new, educational site.

And as we all know, fun learning is forever learning!

After I wrote this blog, Shaney wrote again with the following information–

Our printed materials are available to California educators but almost everything we print is available for free download from our website< to anyone who has access to the Internet. Also, an Agriculture in the Classroom program may be found in almost every state. This will be helpful to your readers across the nation who can look up the program in their state by visiting the National Agriculture in the Classroom website<

Thank you Shaney for such great info!
