florida agricultureHere is a reminder that the 14th annual Florida Agriculture Literacy Day will be held May 2, and the third in a series of new non-fiction children’s books has been developed to help highlight Florida’s aquaculture and seafood industries.

According to a release from Florida Agriculture in the Classroom (FAITC), the book is called “Drive through Florida: Aquaculture and Seafood”.

Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) and FAITC invite farmers, growers, ranchers, Farm Bureau members, Florida cattlemen and cattlewomen, University of Florida IFAS extension and 4-H agents, master gardeners, FFA teachers and students and ag industry representatives to read in elementary classrooms around the state as part of the event.

More information can be found on the FAITC website, agtag.org.
