A successful partnership between Farm & Food Care (FFC) and Agriculture in the Classroom Canada (AITC-C) has led to the completion of a national classroom resource designed to give students and teachers across Canada the opportunity to dig deeper into the latest edition of The Real Dirt on Farming (RDOF).
The Real Dirt on Farming in the Classroom was produced by AITC-C, working in collaboration with FFC. With the help of AITC-C’s provincial agriculture in the classroom organizations, it will be distributed digitally, along with the RDOF booklet, to classrooms across Canada. It was released on Feb. 23, in celebration of Canada’s Agriculture Day.
Bonnie den Haan, Dairy Farmers of Ontario's Board member for Region 6 (Dufferin, Peel, Simcoe and Wellington), and Chair of Farm & Food Care Ontario, said the partnership between AITC-C and Farm & Food Care builds on the strengths of both organizations:
“Working with AITC-C to create this curriculum-based document will extend the reach of our flagship publication even further. We’re excited to see this partnership taking The Real Dirt on Farming into classrooms from coast to coast.”Source : DFO
