Our goal is increase the agricultural literacy of New Hampshire's youth. Educational materials help to integrate agriculture, food and natural resources into K-12 classrooms. By applying authentic agricultural examples to teach core curriculum concepts in science, social studies, math, language arts and nutrition, student awareness can be improved. These programs cultivate an understanding and appreciation of the food, fiber and fuel systems that we all depend upon every day.
