NEW COLORING BOOK!!!  The Marketing Committee has been hard at work developing a new edition of our “Strawberry Time” coloring book. The new book is the same size, with the same number of pages, but features a brand new full color cover.  It tells the story of the strawberry plant from fall planting to spring harvest.  The book now includes pages that encourage handwashing before picking fruit in the field and washing fruit before eating it at home.  Also tips on how to pick strawberries were added.  Each page has new black and white drawings to color and the activities in the back of the book are all new as well.
