New York Agriculture in the Classroom's annual Agricultural Literacy Week will take place 
March 18-22, 2024. Community members around the state will be volunteering to read 
I LOVE Strawberries by Shannon Anderson to elementary classrooms. This book will take students on a journey from a strawberry seedling to table of strawberries, as told through the experiences of Jolie, a young girl determined to prove her responsibility by growing this popular perennial.

This year’s program will be held in-person and volunteers will organize this experience with your classrooms.  If your school is interested in participating, please complete the survey (registration link) below before February 15, 2024.


Free to Orange County Schools
