As wheat harvest continues across the state, Oklahoma farmers are invited to donate bushels of harvested crops to the Bushels for Books program.
A partnership of the Oklahoma Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee and the Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation, the program each year accepts donated crops and monetary contributions to provide Oklahoma schools with bushel baskets of agriculture books.
To donate harvested crops, farmers present a completed Bushels for Books form to their local co-op or grain elevator to designate the amount of bushels they wish to donate to the program.
Educators and schools may apply to receive agriculture books from the program by completing and returning the application by September 14. The books cover various agriculture topics and are chosen by the OKFB WLC from the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture’s book library.
For more information about the program, please contact WLC Coordinator Marcia Irvin at 405-523-2405.
