Province Proclaims Agriculture Literacy Month

Released on March 2, 2020

Today, the Government of Saskatchewan proclaimed March 1-31, 2020, as Agriculture Literacy Month in Saskatchewan.  Agriculture Literacy Month brings producers and industry professionals to the classroom to give students the opportunity to learn where the food on their plate comes from.

“Our food has a story and Agriculture Literacy Month allows students to hear that story first hand from producers,” Agriculture Minister David Marit said.  “It is important that our children and grandchildren receive accurate information about the work done by our agriculture industry straight from the experts.”

This year’s theme is technology, which will teach students about development, uses and the importance of innovation on modern farms and ranches.

“Agriculture has always been, and continues to be, a significant part of the province,” Deputy Premier and Education Minister Gordon Wyant said.  “Our government supports classroom opportunities for Saskatchewan students to learn about agriculture and its contribution to our province.”

“There are so many myths and misconceptions about food and agriculture today, it is difficult for people to know what to believe,” Agriculture in the Classroom Executive Director Sara Shymko said.  “The classroom visits with real people working in the industry are so important because they give students a chance to ask questions and have them answered honestly and openly.”
