Erie County Agricultural Society recognition

HAMBURG — The Erie County Agricultural Society was recognized as an award winner in ag promotion from the New York State Agricultural Society, during the 182nd annual meeting and AgForum for ag education with the Farm 2 Table program.

The NYSAS initiated the Ag Promotion Award in 2009, to recognize individuals and/or groups for their efforts to improve the understanding of agriculture in their communities.

Entries come from across New York state and are judged by a committee.

Farm 2 Table is a program that was designed for third and fourth graders to learn about various aspects of agriculture, and has evolved to be a K-5 agriculture education program.

A total of 8,000 students from several urban and suburban school districts have participated in the program.

“We certainly embrace all the promotion of agriculture across the state,” said Barb Hanselman, committee chair from the NYAS. “However, this program stood out because of its uniqueness and how many the program reaches out to.”
