CAN (NB): Agriculture in the Classroom program launches in schools

More New Brunswick students are digging into agriculture this year thanks to the launch of the new Agriculture in the Classroom program.

The program will support teachers with educational resources and provide hands-on learning experiences to students. The program is designed to connect more students with agriculture and nurture an appreciation for the nutritious food grown in the province.

The initiative is being delivered by the Agricultural Alliance of New Brunswick. The Agriculture in the Classroom project will benefit from $60,000 in funding from the New Brunswick Food and Beverage Strategy. It will also receive $19,900 from the Growing Forward 2 program that is cost-shared on a 60-40 basis between the federal and provincial governments respectively.

The New Brunswick initiative is closely affiliated with the national, not-for-profit organization Agriculture in the Classroom – Canada (AITC-C).  Agriculture in the Classroom – Canada has been delivering resources on the agriculture and food production industry since February, 2015.

Educators interested in delivering the program in their schools and producers and agrologists interested in sharing their passion for agriculture are encouraged to contact the program coordinator, Carolyn Wilson, at education@fermenbfarm.ca,  506- 524-2176, or Josée Albert, Chief Executive Officer the Agricultural Alliance of New Brunswick at josee@fermenbfarm.ca,  506-452-8101, or visit the Agriculture Alliance of New Brunswick website.
