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. By connecting classrooms with farmers and those with a deep connection to agriculture, students and teachers learn firsthand about this sector through the incredible story shared by the volunteer visiting with them.

Throughout the month of March, Island teachers, students, and volunteers participate in interactive educational activities that provide a unique setting to help better understand the importance and value of agriculture to their lives and their communities. On PEI the highlights include:

  • Classroom storybook readings where volunteers from the agriculture community visit grade 3 classrooms to read a book highlighting a theme around farming and food and share their own story.
  • Ag Adventure Days, an event that welcomes grade three students from tip-to-tip to experience agriculture first-hand by learning directly from farmers and members of the agriculture community.
  • Storytime with a Farmer hosted by the PEI Library Service at public libraries across the province.
  • Visits to high school classrooms to talk about careers in agriculture and scholarship opportunities.
