Welcome to Our Website!
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.

2016 Teacher of the Year Awards
Congratulations to Mike Smith of Mascenic Regional High School in New Ipswich for being selected as the Teacher of the Year. Mike’s efforts have resulted in bringing horticulture to the school, not only in his own classes, but to the Family and Consumer Science classes, the food service program and the special needs students, as well as the physical appeal of the building. His students have planted a salsa garden, propagated seeds, tested soil samples, landscaped the school grounds and much more!
