Sponsors of Agricultural Literacies: Intersections of Institutional and Local Knowledge in a Farming Community
Galbreath, Marcy L.
Community Literacy Journal, v10 n1 p59-72 2015
Many of the agricultural literacies engendering twentieth-century farming practices and shaping contemporary concepts of food and nutrition in the United States arose through scientific research at land-grant colleges. This article examines how those literacies reached and interacted with local communities through institutional entities such as the extension service and its youth program, the 4-H.
