Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month
Agriculture in the Classroom-Canada (AITC) member organizations celebrate Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month (CALM) annually in classrooms across the nation each March. Agriculture comes alive in Canadian classrooms as students participate in activities to learn about, connect to and understand this important industry. Events and activities run throughout the month, to celebrate the fact that agriculture is all around us, every day!
Since 2012, Agriculture in the Classroom-Canada has delivered this program to over 90,000 students in Canada. This hands-on program will encourage students to learn about and celebrate agriculture in various ways, including reading about farming, watching videos and live stream events, and meeting with farmers and other agricultural representatives.
This project initiative was made possible through generous core funding from Farm Credit Canada.
