The month of March has been declared Agriculture Literacy Month in Saskatchewan.
It's designed to encourage students to participate in conversations and activities to help them learn more about the agriculture industry.
The Province is contributing $400,000 in funding to Saskatchewan's Agriculture in the Classroom program.
Agriculture in the Classroom Saskatchewan Executive Director Sara Shymko says they appreciate the additional funding and are excited about the opportunities to continue to grow this valuable program and develop new student experiences.
Agriculture Minister David Marit says Agriculture Literacy Month is a great opportunity to educate our children and grandchildren about the dedication of Saskatchewan producers and the world-class, environmentally sustainable food they grow.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of Agriculture Literacy Month in the Province.Click here to see more...
