March has been designated Ag Literacy Month by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture.
Events connecting students, teachers and producers and industry members in the classroom are planned throughout the month. The communication will occur in the classroom and at hands-on activities.
The theme, set by Canada Agriculture in the Classroom (CALM), is Our Food Has a Story.
The month of programs sets the tone for how students feel about agriculture and food production in later years.
Producers can volunteer to take part in the ag literacy program at the CALM website.
