Enjoying the Harvest workbook available.
|Enjoying the Harvest is a new activity book written for children showing how Wisconsin's farmers get fruits and vegetables from the field to market. Students will follow the growing process month-by-month - from winter pruning through spring planting and the growing season to the fall harvest. The 24 page booklet offers challenging word searches, crosswords, reading, and coloring activities.
The booklet was produced through a joint effort of the Wisconsin Apple Growers, Wisconsin Berry Growers and Wisconsin Fresh Market Vegetable Growers Associations. It is funded in part by grants from the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection and Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation Ag in the Classroom. It was written by WBGA Executive Director Anna Maenner and illustrated by Bradley Maenner.
The book can be used in classrooms, given out on field trips, or offered to children at orchards and farm markets. Cost of the book is 25¢ each in packs of 50. To order, print the mail-in form or contact the Wisconsin Berry Growers Association at (920) 478-3852 or email.
