Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month
Agriculture in the Classroom (AITC) organizations from across Canada worked collectively with other organizations on an initiative to declare March the Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month (CALM). This program will encourage Elementary students to learn about and celebrate agriculture through various activities such as reading books about farming, watching videos, and meeting with agricultural representatives.
Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month is one of many of the outreach programs supported by AITC-Canada.
