Talking to kids about where food comes from

The Classroom Agriculture Program is seeking volunteers willing to go to schools and talk to Grade 4 students about agriculture. Since 1985, producers and others in the ag sector have made presentations to more than 600,000 students.

The provincially funded program provides participants with training for their one-hour presentation (in March, April, or May) as well as materials for the classroom. Volunteers focus on their area of farming or specialty, and preparing takes about five hours.
