Planting SeedsGrowing Tomorrow's Food and Farm Leaders

There is something GREAT happening this fall & we think you may want to be a part of it. planting seeds2

2020 Date- Friday, October 2nd

Planting seeds takes place annually in the fall and we partner with the Science Centre to host this day of connecting kids to their food. Through a series of “stations,” students will: plant a seed, investigate a seed in Ecolab, learn about nutrition, explore the complex world of bees and pollination, have an organic snack, discover vermi-composting, test for herbicide residues, and try Brix's testing.

How does it work?

This project will involve students from approximately four to five classrooms from South Central Saskatchewan planting seedseither urban or rural.  The project will begin in the Fall with a field trip to the Saskatchewan Science Centre during National Organic Week.  The field trip will start a six week program developed by the Food Miles Committee of the Saskatchewan Organic Directorate,

The focus of this curriculum based unit is to create awareness about our food, where it comes from, its quality, the choices we make and the environmental impact of importing 96% of our foods from outside of Saskatchewan. This unit was developed to correlate with outcomes listed in the Saskatchewan Middle Years curriculum.  

Organic Connections role is to introduce students to organic food and the farmers that grow it.  This promises to be a fun, educational day for students, teachers and chaperones.
