Celebrating 10 years! CALM

Celebrating 10 Years of CALM all March long


About 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!

In 2020, CALM celebrated its 10th anniversary with new interactive resources, events, and programs across Canada, and creating agriculture and food experiences for more than 53,000 students. 
We look forward to kicking off CALM once again in March 2021.

Alex's First Seed

The CALM program is an amazing coordination across the country that links schools with farmers. Just by showing up and smiling, a bridge has begun to be built.

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