What is Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month?
In 2012, Agriculture in the Classroom-Canada worked collectively on the initiative to declare one week in early March as Canadian Agriculture Literacy Week. These week-long celebrations were so popular, it has been expanded to a full month! This hands-on program encourages students to learn about and celebrate agriculture through a variety of events and activities.
