PARTNERSHIP WITH BIPOC FARMERS IN FORT BEND COUNTY.

May 22, 2021

@1046 Farms is located in Beasley, Texas, women-owned and black operated. We have partnered with this family farm to build and implement a farm-to-school program with literacy experiences that are multidimensional and multisensory. We are driven to engage children in grades K-6 in the agriculture space through reading.
