The third grade teachers and students of a California school will be studying farms during the 1998-99 school year. Read about it. If you live on a farm they would like you to write them and invite a student to write to you and learn about your farm. This is a very interesting Farm/City project. Here is an E-zine story about the project.They want to write by e-mail to farms in every nation. December 13: I don't think they need any more farms.
