All The Farmers You Will Know

We’re excited to introduce a new storybook for younger students this year. All The Farmers You Will Know highlights the wonders of the modern farm and the farmers and families who work and live on them. The books will be shared with classes in every province to help younger students learn about agriculture.

I Am The Future

Youth are encouraged to discover careers in agriculture and agri-food using a cool new video tool at Students on their career journey can see themselves in the future by finding out which careers in agriculture might be a good fit for them.


Quotes from Previous CALM Participants

I found the information very interesting and there were several things that I learned as the teacher. Our presenter clearly knew her stuff and was able to also show and tell the students about local agriculture businesses. It's a very good program and will definitely be doing it again next year. 

Teacher Alberta

The students will remember these visits for the whole year. It will be the highlight of their school year.

Teacher Newfoundland

We absolutely loved providing you with hours of assistance in this extraordinary project!

Volunteer École-O-Champ

It was a wonderful time. The kids touched the samples, answered questions and were greatly involved. We spoke about agriculture and logistics, geography and climate. I shared my story about living in Ukraine, our flag and the grain symbol on it. Thank you again for the great opportunity to be a part of such a helpful and important project.

Tetiana Dosuzha Cargill Volunteer, Manitoba

It was truly a wonderful experience. All of the children were so polite, bright and engaging. Their questions were amazing and I think there are some future beekeepers amongst them. It was a privilege to be able to do this and I feel happy and rewarded from this time with them. 

Donna House Beekeeper Volunteer, Newfoundland

The program is wonderful and is needed in our schools. Thank you so much.
