Ag Time WITH ABBY Shaping the Future
FOR ABOUT 12 YEARS NOW, Florida Agriculture In The Classroom has been creating books and content that can relate to students of all ages and their connection to agriculture. Each year, FFA and 4-H members all spend part of their day reading a specific book to different grade levels at local elementary schools across the state of Florida.

If you know me, you know this is one of my favorite days of the year! I absolutely love getting to speak to different groups of students, ask them questions about agriculture, and hopefully spark an interest in them that will remain throughout their life. My favorite question to ask at the beginning of my time with them is “Who knows where their food comes from?” I revisit this question at the end of my presentation, and it’s exciting to see how much the students’ answers change.

Polk County FFA members, I would LOVE to see many of you volunteering! You can easily sign up on their website at
