Agriculture in the Classroom

Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month

March 2020 - Registration is now closed

PLEASE NOTE: As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, we all have a role to play in slowing its spread and minimizing its impact on our health care system and our communities. As part of this effort, we are suspending our Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month (CALM) classroom visits until further notice.

As response to COVID-19 is a fluid, rapidly unfolding situation, AITC-M will continue to monitor the recommendations of our health care agencies. When the threat passes, AITC-M will contact all volunteers and teachers and encourage them to reschedule this school year!

The health and safety of our participating educators and their students, volunteers and staff is our number one priority. Thank you for your support and understanding.

Take Care!


Join us in celebrating Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month (CALM) by volunteering during March 2020.
