Canada Agriculture Day

February 11th, 2020 was Canada's Agriculture Day! How did you celebrate?
 

This year we celebrated at Stephenville Primary in Stephenville with 350 students! Students explored interactive and educational booths that connected them with agriculture, heathy eating, and local food. Agriculture representatives were there to answer questions and engage students in various activities relating to Newfoundland and Labrador's agriculture industry.
Then students, staff, and guests were provided with lunch prepared by local chef, D'arcy Butler and the culinary students at CNA using local products. Thank you to Chicken Farmers of NL, School Milk Foundation of NL, and Campbellton Berry Farm for supplying product. Students then enjoyed a performance from MusicNL nominee for Music Educator of the Year award, Kacie Callahan.
