Can’t get your class to one of our out-of-school programs or want to supplement a program or lesson plan with a fun, engaging activity? We will come to you to faciliate a fun, hands-on curriculum-aligned presentation, right in your classroom!
One of our dynamic team members will guide your class through an age-appropriate presentation exploring a relevant aspect of food production. We'll bring all the supplies needed and take care of the mess afterwards! Each pesentation requires approximately 1 hour of class time. There is no cost to participate in this program.

Students will explore the roll of seeds and the needs of emerging plants. Students will plant their own ‘micro-garden’ to illustrate the concepts of plant needs and plants as food.

Students will investigate how soil is made, the soil zones of Saskatchewan and the important role of soil in producing healthy food. Students will get their hands dirty by creating a work of art using soil-based paint.
