Important CALM 2020 Update

In light of the coronavirus, the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) has recommended that Canadians reduce large-group activities. They have encouraged social distancing and the cancelation of all non-essential travel to limit the spread of COVID-19. Considering these recent recommendations, activities across the country for Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month (CALM) may be impacted in your province.

Please check in with your provincial member organization to confirm details for your specific area.

Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding.

What is CALM?

Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month (CALM) is an engaging experiential opportunity that encourages students from K to 12 in all 10 provinces to learn about and celebrate Canada’s incredible agriculture and food story. By connecting classrooms with farmers and people with a passion for agriculture and food, students and teachers learn firsthand about this sector through the incredible story shared by the volunteer visiting with them!

I loved that my students got to learn about all the different forms of agriculture and how diverse it is.

I just love the questions from the kids, and usually they are things that I would never think to explain. With the massive disconnect between ag producers and today’s consumers properly explaining what and why we do things is extremely important!
