Ag Literacy Events

AZFB AITC offers several Ag Literacy Events throughout the year. These 30-minute presentations are designed for the K-2 classroom. As students become more and more disconnected from the farm and their food, it is important that we show them where their food is coming from and who it is that is producing it. These standards-based presentations are available to the first 850 classrooms to register. They are offered for FREE and participating teachers get to keep the book for their classroom library. To schedule your spot in an Ag Literacy Event please email scheduleaitc@azfb.org. Books for the 2022-2023 School Year do not open until July 11, 2022.
