Volunteer Ag-Lit Reader Sharon Garvey reads, “The Beeman,” to Linda Jacque's Pre-K class at Willsboro Central School. The week of March 18-22 is NYS Ag-Literacy Week. Cornell Cooperative Extension and Farm Bureau of Essex County collaborate to provide this annual event for our county's youth. A different aspect of agriculture is highlighted each year and shared with NYS elementary school students. This year, we celebrate those unsung heroes Honeybees and their Beekeepers. The book selected for the reading is “The Beeman,” by Laurie Krebs and Valeria Cis. This delightful book is told through the eyes of a young boy who accompanies his grandfather into the beeyard. Classrooms in Westport, Moriah, Ticonderoga, Willsboro, and Keeseville participate each year in this event. For more information or to schedule a reading for your youth group, please contact Linda Gillilland 962-4810 ext. 416
