Ag in the Classroom program implemented in N.B.
By The Government of N.B.
More New Brunswick students are digging into agriculture this year thanks to the launch of the new Agriculture in the Classroom program.
The program supports teachers with educational resources and provides hands-on learning experiences to students. The program is designed to connect more students with agriculture and nurture an appreciation for the nutritious food grown in the province.
The Agriculture in the Classroom project will receive $60,000 from the New Brunswick Food and Beverage Strategy. It will also receive $19,900 from the Growing Forward 2 program that is cost-shared on a 60-40 basis between the federal and provincial governments. For the full story, click here.
