Agriculture in the Classroom-Manitoba's flagship program, Amazing Agriculture Adventure (AAA), is looking for volunteers. This year's AAA takes place on June 6th and 7th at the Keystone Centre in Brandon, MB.

The AAA is an annual event hosted for Grade 4 and 5 students for two days in Brandon in June. Students are provided with hands-on experiences at 16 to 18 interactive stations about Manitoba agriculture.

This event is made possible with over 160 volunteers every year. Support is still needed for the following positions:
