Acres for Education Campaign

Education For a Strong, Resilient Agriculture Future

The future of farming and agriculture depends on today’s youth. Grade 12 students will soon be graduating and choosing a career, what foods to buy, and which policies to support. In 5 years, they could be writing their very first briefing note for PMRA or writing a media article on sustainable agriculture practices. In 15 years, students in Grade 2 will be doing the same. What do you want them to know about agriculture?

Education is key in igniting a passion and interest in agriculture and its impact on our daily lives. By engaging students in agriculture education initiatives, we are:

  • inspiring them to know and care more about our food system,

  • building understanding and support for modern farming practices, and

  • opening their eyes to careers in an exciting and rewarding industry.

Invest in the Future of Your Farm

You have the power to ensure the vitality and success of your farm in the future by investing in the education of youth today. With each agricultural experience we provide during a student’s education journey, we are building the pathway to agriculture literacy, and a stronger future for us all. 

Bright students happily learning about agriculture and where their food comes from.

10 Cents Makes Sense

We are challenging farmers in Saskatchewan to donate 10 cents an acre to agriculture education. Consider the cost of inputs you invest into your crops, would adding 10 cents make a significant difference? Likely not. But 10 cents an acre in Saskatchewan classrooms will make a deep and meaningful impact. Our goals:

  • $150,000 helps meet current demand from teachers. Since the pandemic, demand for our hands-on, in-person learning experiences has grown beyond our capacity. Every time we say no to a teacher, we are missing the opportunity for a classroom of students to connect with agriculture. 

  • $250,000 takes agriculture education to a new level of impact. But we don’t want to just meet the demand, we want to exceed it. Creating new initiatives will capture even more opportunities throughout a student’s K-12 journey to connect them with agriculture.

  • Every donation will receive a charitable receipt.

  • No acres? No problem. You can still support agricultural experiences by donating however much makes sense to you.
