Agriculture literacy month underway in Canada
Agriculture in the Classroom - Canada (AITC-Canada), representing eight provincial Agriculture in the Classroom organizations, will participate for the sixth year in a newly expanded format of Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month (formerly Canadian Agriculture Literacy Week) in schools across Canada during the month of March.
Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month (CALM) is a hands-on program that encourages children to learn about and celebrate agriculture in various ways, including reading books about farming, watching videos and meeting with farmers and others in the agriculture industry. Building awareness for students on the connection they have to local farmers and agriculture industry representatives is important to the success of CALM.
AITC-Canada organizations will deliver to over 30,000 students in over 800 classrooms across Canada in March. This year's theme is "Our Food. Our Story."
