Saskatchewan Government Proclaims Agriculture Literacy Month

February 28, 2018

agriculture_literacy_month_en.pngMarch 2018 has been proclaimed as Agriculture Literacy Month in Saskatchewan.

Agriculture Literacy Month brings farmers, ranchers and other members of the agriculture industry into elementary school classrooms around the province to read stories and discuss their agricultural experiences.  Materials for the classroom visits, such as books and videos, are provided by Agriculture in the Classroom – Saskatchewan.

Since 2012, Agriculture in the Classroom – Canada has been working collectively to declare one week in early March as Canadian Agriculture Week.  Last year was the first time agriculture literacy was celebrated with events and activities for an entire month.
