About the Program
The goal of Agriculture for the Classroom is to make agriculture come alive in the Kootenays, promote healthy food choices and an understanding of what goes on in the production of our food.

Many opportunities are available to classes for field trips, depending on the season, student demographic and interest! Take a trip to a dairy and see how our milk is produced or taste cheeses and milk  produced in the East Kootenays. Explore an orchard to find the 'magic pumpkin' (you get to have one of your choice) or visit the fruit and vegetable stand to learn what kinds of produce we grow and what is involved in producing the fruit and vegetables we eat.  Help pick raspberries or apples, depending on the time. You get to keep some too!! Visit a greenhouse or a farm to see how vegetables are cared for both outside or in a greenhouse setting. You may get to pick squash or vegetables depending on the season. Visit the vet clinic and see how big and small animals are treated when sick.   Take a trip to a cattle ranch, see the dogs working with sheep and perhaps get to feed the sheep, and play with the pygmy goats.  See the new calves and other animals, and learn how crops are watered and harvested.  These trips can be paired with in class presentations.

About the Community Educator
