French and English speaking volunteers are needed!
Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month (CALM) is a hands-on program that brings agriculture into classrooms and encourages students to learn about and celebrate Canadian agriculture. Many students don’t fully understand what agriculture is. By telling students why you love Canadian agriculture, and giving them a glimpse of what you do, you will open their eyes to new knowledge, help them build a stronger appreciation for the food they eat, and for the role agriculture plays in their lives.
Every year, we need a team of over 150 volunteers to meet the demand for CALM. We anticipate with being back in-person that the demand from teachers will be high — so we are calling on you!
If you are passionate about sharing your story and want to present to students in the classroom, we will take as many presentations as you’re willing to offer!
