  2. Read and donate a book to an elementary classroom.
  3. Plan and lead one agricultural literacy activity in their school.

Participating Chapters receive:

  1. Guidebook with lessons and activities.
  2. Teaching materials to lead lessons and activities.
  3. A connection to local community leaders.

All program materials and training are provided at no cost.
