By Hempstead County Farm Bureau Women’s Committee
Our Hempstead County Farm Bureau Women’s Committee was presented a check today from the Arkansas State FB Foundation by Amanda Williams for $700.
This money will go to provide a new egg hatching project for all 3rd grade classrooms in Hempstead County. We will be hatching eggs in each classroom showing our 3rd graders just where a chicken comes from.
They will be able to experience first hand the 21 day cycle of hatching chickens. Along with this they will be given egg hatching fun and educational activity sheets to do in their classroom.
We are excited to be adding this project to our on going Ag in the Classroom emphasis supporting all of our local farmers.
