March is Agriculture Literacy Month in Saskatchewan

Released on March 1, 2024

Today, the Government of Saskatchewan proclaimed March as Agriculture Literacy Month in Saskatchewan. Agriculture Literacy Month activities invite farmers, ranchers and industry experts into participating classrooms, offering students the chance to discover where their food comes from. 

"Agriculture Literacy Month contributes to building an informed perspective on the significance of farming and ranching in Saskatchewan and its impact on the world," Agriculture Minister David Marit said. "By ensuring our youth understand the many hands it takes to grow safe and nutritious food, we are helping to create a sustainable future for the industry."

Throughout the month of March, industry volunteers, from all levels of food production, will join classrooms to share presentations and personal experiences to help students learn more about agriculture. 

"Saskatchewan is known globally for supplying the world with high-quality food and fertilizer, as we have the best producers  and agriculture experts in the world," Education Minster Jeremy Cockrill said. "I thank the many industry professionals who visit schools to share with students how important agriculture is within our province and around the world."

Agriculture in the classroom plays an important role in the agriculture industry by creating awareness and understanding and inspiring the next generation to care about the agriculture industry. This year, the Agriculture Literacy Month theme is "Promoting Diversity in Agriculture" and features a new storybook called "All the Famers You Will Know." 

"This year's theme is important and timely for the industry," Agriculture in the Classroom Saskatchewan Executive Director Sara Shymko said. "We will need diversity of thought, experience and skills to solve the challenges and capitalize on the opportunities the future holds.

Agriculture Literacy Month is a nation-wide effort with provinces across Canada proclaiming the month. For more information on how you can take part in Agriculture Literacy Month, visit: aitc-canada.
