A huge “thank-you” to those who came on Saturday, May 21st for the
used book and plant sale. The weather was gorgeous, so we know
you made a choice to come and visit us. The plant donations
from Millican’s Nursery were big hits with customers, and we
certainly thank them for their philanthropy. There were
additional plants available, and we thank the donors for them, also.

AgCom Delivers Agricultural Events To School
May 4th marked the second year Agricultural Commission (AgCom)
members Catherine and John Snow have read to Chichester Central
School (CCS) students. The apple industry is an
important part of New Hampshire agriculture. This year NH Farm
Bureau “Ag in the Classroom” agricultural literacy project featured
the book How Do Apples Grow? by Betsy Maestr, Illustrated by Giulio
Maestro. Approximately 52 first, second and third graders
attended the three readings. Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Snow
for offering their time and sharing a better understanding of the
apple growing process with CCS students.
The Agricultural Literacy Curriculum
Matrix is an online, searchable, and standards-based curriculum map
for K-12 teachers. The Matrix contextualizes national education
standards in science, social studies, and nutrition education with
relevant instructional resources linked to Common Core Standards.
A first for Chichester’s AgCom was to participation in “Ag Days” by
bringing agricultural information and demonstrations to CCS on May
20. More than 105 students visited with two prominent
Jeff Jordan brought two sheep and one goat as well as equipment and
supplies to demonstrate how to shear sheep and long-haired goats,
explaining different breeds, when and how often to shear and sell
the wool. Students had a chance to meet the animals, feel the
texture of the wool’s “crimp” and its elasticity, as well as ask
questions about marketing the wool.
Mr. Jordan raises about 100 head of sheep and a dozen or so goats on
his farm; he has farmed since he was eight and is known throughout
New England for his sheep shearing skills. He is also a
Chichester selectman and heavily involved in the NH Sheep & Wool
Growers Association. Thank you to Mr. Jordan for his time and
sharing his knowledge with CCS students.
Deb and Randy Harris brought an observation hive (a sealed 5-frame
hive), honey, beekeeping equipment and clothing, and a pollinator
chart. Students learned about the six-week life cycle of the
honey bee, the difference between worker bees, drones and queens,
the importance of pollination and that it takes 1,152 to travel
112,000 miles and visit 4.5 million flowers to make one pound of
honey. There were many good questions asked, Deb handed out
honeybee related handouts to the students. Also, “I Met a
Farmer Today!” stickers donated by NH Farm Bureau.
The Harris’ have 10 hives on their Golden Acres Honey Bee Farm which
they sell out of their home and at events. They were
instrumental in founding the Capital Area Beekeepers Association
(CABA) and continue to volunteer many hours in the club and bee
school. Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Harris for their time and
sharing their honey bee knowledge with CCS students.
If interested in joining the AgCom and/or participate in its events,
please contact us at [email protected] or
come to a meeting, 3rd Wed of the month, Jan-Oct.
