Education Helps Build a Strong, Resilient Agriculture
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 more and care more about where their food comes from and who produces it,
building understanding and support for modern farming practices and the choices farmers make to produce food in a safe and sustainable way, and
opening students' eyes to the variety of careers in an exciting and rewarding industry that is helping to feed our world.
