NH Ag in the Classroom is promoting three presentations in April by former  Commissioner of Agriculture Steve Taylor of his talk, ‘Cows and Communities—How the Lowly Bovine Has Nurtured New Hampshire through Four Centuries.’

“As children learn about the role of dairy farms in schools, their teachers, parents and community members can also gain information from Taylor’s program,” suggests the NH Ag in the Classroom newsletter, which is emailed to hundreds of teachers and other interested folks. “This talk explores the past, present and future role of dairy farming in the Granite State and the impact it has had on people and landscape.”

Taylor’s talks begin at 7:00 pm and are free, thanks to funding by the NH Humanities Council. Here are the dates and locations:

  • Monday, April 1, Weare Town Hall, 15 Flanders Road – co-sponsored by Weare Town Library
  • Wednesday, April 3, Prescott Farm Environmental Education Center, 928 White Oaks Rd, Laconia – co-sponsored by PFEEC.
  • Tuesday, April 30, Nottingham School, 245 Stage Road – co-sponsored by Nottingham School.
