Mass Agriculture Calendar
The Massachusetts Agriculture Calendar is an excellent resource that serves as an educational tool for teachers, legislators and the public, providing an attractive daily reminder of the diversity of agriculture across the state, with educational tips and website links on each page. The calendar is a collaboration between the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources and Massachusetts Agriculture in the Classroom, the beneficiary of all sales and sponsorships.
Each calendar month features one full-size photograph portraying a local farm or farm product. An additional smaller photograph is included on most pages. The photographs for the 2014 Massachusetts Agriculture Calendar will be selected from winning entries submitted by amateur photographers for the 2013 Massachusetts Agriculture Calendar Photo Contest.
Send a picture of any Bay State farm, animal, field crop or floral display to the Calendar Photo Contest by June 1, 2013. To enter the contest, visit MDAR’s website at www.mass.gov/agr/massgrown/docs/photo-contest-entry-form.pdf.
