In March 2021, Agriculture in the Classroom - Canada (AITC) celebrates their 10th anniversary of the Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month (CALM)! Hosted in classrooms across the country, this program helps students to LEARN, CONNECT and UNDERSTAND agriculture through fun and interactive activities.
WHAT IS CALM?
In 2012, AITC worked collectively on the initiative to declare one week in early March known as the Canadian Agriculture Literacy Week. Due to popular demand, this program has now grown to last an entire month.
Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month (CALM) is an engaging experiential opportunity that encourages students from K to 12 in all 10 provinces to learn about and celebrate Canada’s incredible agriculture and food story.
In the past 10 years of CALM, they have reached out to over 315,000 students by connecting classrooms with farmers and people with a passion for agriculture and food, students and teachers learn firsthand about this sector through the incredible story shared by the volunteer visiting with them!
Events and activities will run throughout the month to celebrate the fact that agriculture is all around us, every day!
