Expanding

The Oklahoma Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee has joined forces with the Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation to connect agriculture producers with school children to provide accurate agriculture books for schools across our state.

For farmers Farmers can expand agriculture education in Oklahoma schools by simply donating bushels of harvested crops to Bushels for Books or by making a cash donation to the program. Donated crops and cash donations made to the foundation for the Bushels for Books program will be used to purchase bushel baskets of accurate agricultural books to be placed in Oklahoma schools. For details on how to donate to the program, contact Chris Kidd at chris.kidd@aggiving.org.

Bushels for Books

For educators Educators can apply to receive a bushel baskets of gradelevel-speci ic accurate agriculture books chosen by the Oklahoma Farm Bureau Women's Leadership Committee, or a school librarian can submit an application for a basket of books that span multiple grade levels. Applications are due September 14 and can be found at okfarmbureau.org/applications. The books will be awarded at the Flapjack Fundraiser at the 2018 Oklahoma Farm Bureau Convention in Norman on November 17. Winners must attend the event.
