Looking for some help! Did anybody convert TOM TURKEY to an on-line escape box? How about Help with a Coffee/We even went down to Cocoa farm to table lesson….or a geography lesson. (Diane from Cook looking for INteractive Turkey stuff….Melissa from Franklin looking for Coffee Stuff! Share on the Facebook site IL Ag Literacy Coordinators)

How about anyone that has ever done a book walk (for Carrie from Sangamon/Menard)…..(Maria from Williamson..any advice?) How about helping Debbie from Livingston out with some Postcard idea.

Thank to Maria, Williamson County for her Book Walk Picture!

Jennifer from Peoria shared that canned pumpkin has a code to determine where it was processed! We are all eagerly awaiting her to share that (we’ll post here later!) Attached is the info from Jennifer. After and extensive search, this ONLY works for ALDI Brand Pumpkin, other canned goods have their own codes (not as standardized as milk..but cool none the less!!)

Also…use the Facebook site to share your personal victories (and setback?) from doing things virtually—Sarah from Champaign was looking for other ideas…but we certainly want to borrow her ‘popup pumpkin patch’….(follow her on Facebook to see more!)

SAVE THE DATES…this chat went so well…we have scheduled 2 more …..

November 4, 2020 12 noon…..(looking forward to talking something besides ELECTIONS that day!)

December 9, 2020 12 noon!
