Chester County Ag Council
Deb Ellis is a former elementary teacher and an egg farmer at Highspire Hills Farm in Glenmoore. She and her friend Ann from the Chester County Ag Council will be sharing books, snacks, and activities with kids grades K-5. This program is all about agriculture, where our food is from, and what farming means to all of us. In celebration of spring, they are going to read Anywhere Farm by Phyllis Root. They will be teaching kids how they can sprout their very own seeds at home without needing a farm or even a garden. Register now for this free program!
