Hands, and Health.

As the year wraps up, and the holiday season approaches, we wanted to highlight ways to give back to the industry. Learn more about how you can support the organizations below, which help build public trust and leadership capacity in the agriculture industry. These groups do great work reaching their designated audiences and strengthen our industry as a whole.

For example, 4-H Saskatchewan works with youth to develop invaluable skills in areas such as leadership, self-confidence and building a sense of community. Members learn these skills through 4-H’s, "Learn to Do by Doing" motto and there are more than 50 different project options available to choose from. 4-H has become one of Canada's most valued youth programs with roots dating back over a century. Visit 4-H Saskatchewan – Donate Online to learn more about the group, including how you can get involved or how to donate.

Agriculture in the Classroom Saskatchewan (AITC-SK) partners with the agriculture industry and education communities to connect kids with agriculture through innovative, experiential, curriculum-based programs and resources. The organization strives to strengthen the agriculture industry by creating well-informed consumers. They help students understand where their food comes from, the importance of science and technology in sustainably producing food and they also show that farmers care for both the land and their animals. AITC-SK helps students think critically about the information they are exposed to, especially when it comes to food production. There are many ways to get involved with AITC-SK, like donating funds for resource development, or donating your time to present to a classroom in March during Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month. Learn more about how you can donate or help at AITC-SK - Get Involved.

Farm and Food Care Saskatchewan works to find new and innovative ways to connect farmers, ranchers and others involved in food production to the consumers of their food. They organize a number of programs to narrow the gap between consumers and farmers. They champion the agriculture industry and strive to educate the public about the safe and affordable food produced in Saskatchewan. You can get involved in a number of ways, including hosting a farm tour, volunteering your time or donating funds. You can learn more about what they do at Farm and Food Care – About Us.

Mobile Crisis, a non-profit, community based agency, administers the Farm Stress Line which provides producers in Saskatchewan assistance when dealing with mental health challenges. The confidential, toll free line helps producers clarify problems and concerns and find solutions. They connect producers with appropriate agencies, professionals and programs and listen and support in a safe, neutral and non-judgmental environment. To learn more about Mobile Crisis, please visit Mobile Crisis Services – About Us.

All four of these organizations are making a difference in their own way. Any and all contributions help to make our industry stronger and more resilient.
