Teacher Agriculture Expedition

August 15-17, 2023

Are you curious about food and agriculture?

Do you want to learn how to engage students in learning through agriculture education?

The Teacher Agriculture Expedition is an action-packed, hands-on agriculture tour for educators that will motivate you, and provide you with the tools and knowledge to incorporate agriculture education into your classroom teachings. You will personally interact with farmers and agriculture personnel at their farms and agri-businesses to understand their role in producing safe, healthy, and affordable food in our province. They will share with you how science, research, and technology have helped improve the sustainability of their operation, and how they play an important role in keeping Saskatchewan agriculture competitive in a global market. Along the expedition, you will be spoiled with delicious, locally produced snacks and meals, and stay in fun accommodations.

This year's Teacher Agriculture Expedition will be exploring agriculture in the Swift Current area (transportation from Saskatoon and Regina can be provided). A sneak peak into the tour, stops will include Springlake Hutterite Colony, Prairiefield Honey, and many more!

Preference will be given to teachers with limited agriculture knowledge and background, as well as a demonstrated commitment to share their experiences on social media and become an AITC-SK ambassador in the future.

Only 20 spots are available. Transportation, accommodations, and meals are included. A $100 refundable deposit will be required to hold your spot should your application be accepted.

"This was the most transformational excursion I have had the pleasure to go on. I loved learning about how farmers are taking active measures to ensure that our food is produced in the most environmentally friendly way. ... I really appreciated the connections I made with several of the participants and look forward to using some of the resources in my classroom now that I have a great awareness of what is available for my grade."
