Agriculture Literacy Week

June 7, 2024

Agriculture Literacy was celebrated March 18-22, 2024. Three Rivers staff read this year’s Ag in the Classroom book “Logan’s Greenhouse” to over forty children at the King William, King & Queen and Essex County libraries during story time. Several copies of the book purchased by Three Rivers Soil & Conservation District were donated to the libraries at the end of the program.

An additional book was also donated to West Point Elementary School where Michele Bland (2nd grade teacher) and Kathryn Bland (3rd grade teacher) read to their individual classes.

After reading to the children, Three Rivers staff also helped the children participate in hands-on activities involving vegetables that highlighted the message which correlated back to “Logan’s Greenhouse”. At King William Library, the children were given lettuce seeds to take home and plant while children at King & Queen Library planted carrot seeds in biodegradable peat pots to take home and plant in their garden. Essex County Library children did an activity where they colored a pea plant and made pea pods out of construction paper that were then glued onto their page.
