County Marks Agriculture Literacy Week

OSWEGO – The Oswego County Legislature’s Economic Development and Planning Committee presented a proclamation designating Agriculture Literacy Week to Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County.

Agriculture Literacy Week

Thanks to technological, marketing and scientific innovations, modern-day agriculture is a mystery to many people, making the need for agricultural literacy more crucial than ever.

Across the state, second-grade students gained a better understanding of how food goes from the farm to their table as volunteers brought agriculture-themed books and hands-on lessons into their classroom March 18 to 22 in celebration of Agriculture Literacy Week.
