Agriculture literacy week in Saskatchewan
By Top Crop Manager
Mar. 3, 2014 - Saskatchewan has proclaimed March 3-9, 2014, as Agriculture Literacy Week in the province.
"Agriculture Literacy Week is an opportunity for youth to get engaged in agriculture and increase their understanding of food production," Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart said in a news release. "It helps students who may be removed from the farm understand where their food comes from."
Agriculture Literacy Week will be observed through a variety of events held by Agriculture in the Classroom Saskatchewan and schools across the province. Classrooms will connect with agriculture through activities such as reading books about farming, watching videos and meeting with farmers and other agriculture industry representatives.
