October FARM Bags Engage 600 Kids
“What are we going to do with all these pumpkins?!” Those were the words of Farm Bureau Manager Greg Millburg, upon seeing an ocean of orange in the Center for Agriculture garage recently. That was the staging area for basket after bushel basket of pumpkins needed for October’s FARM Bags.
FARM stands for Food & Agriculture Resources Monthly, and October was the first month bag supplies were available to groups by request. And what a month it was! In all, a dozen groups requested supplies to reach 600 children across the county.
FARM Bag supplies will be available by request during each month of the 2020-2021 school year. The request form for December’s activity, which will focus on wheat, can be found at http://bit.ly/FARMbagDec20.

Several Sycamore 3rd grade classes incorporated the pumpkin FARM Bag activities into remote learning. Shown are students from Kyla Rader’s class at Southeast School.
