The Adopt-A-Classroom program â€śmatchesâ€ť Chicago classrooms
with Farm Writers from across the state in order to educate those
students and teachers about the importance of agriculture in our
everyday lives. From fall to spring, the Farm Writer will interact with
students through photos, letters, videos or even visits explaining
their contribution to the food and fiber system in Illinois. They may
also send samples of seeds, farm magazines, books, lessons or
activities for the classroom. In return, students will write letters to
the Farm Writer with questions and comments about agriculture or the
Farm Writerâ€™s farm in particular.
