Ontario Agriculture Week
Where: Your Classroom
Ontario is a province overflowing with fresh, locally-grown, high-quality food and products, and from October 7 to 13, we will be celebrating Ontario Agriculture Week.
Ontario Agriculture Week is dedicated to celebrating the abundance of food our farmers produce, the hard working people this industry employs, the rural communities we support and the economic engine we fuel.
To help teachers and students celebrate Ontario Agriculture Week 2019, AgScape is offering resources and programs for both elementary and secondary classrooms.
