The McCain Foundation has donated $10,000 to support an agriculture education tool kit developed by Ag for Life.
The tool kit was created for use in schools, and includes information such as provincial statistics, facts and F&Qs, agricultural terminology, learning activities, and key contacts (such as producer groups and agriculture educational programs) that are available to schools. Information highlights key sectors of Alberta agriculture including crops, cattle, poultry, eggs, pork, and food production.
“By connecting children to where their food comes from, I believe we can ultimately foster healthier and more sustainable lifestyles,” said Linda McCain, a director of the McCain Foundation. “Who knows? We may even inspire a future generation of farmers.”
Last year, Ag for Life education programs reached more than 52,000 children, youth, and adults.
