Agriculture is more than just farming, agriculture connects us all.

Fresh Thinking

Connect, Share and Engage. 

At Ag for Life, we are passionate about connecting youth to agriculture and food, and sharing the stories and values of the farmers and ranchers who grow it. 

 

Our mission is to cultivate an understanding and appreciation of all that agriculture brings to our daily lives and work to keep Alberta growing for generations to come.

We work closely with educators and partners to make sure the resources we share reflect

up-to-date knowledge, foster critical thinking skills and bring agriculture to life in fun and engaging ways.

Best of all? Our resources are directly linked to Alberta curriculum at all grade levels.

Agriculture is a wonderful world, so dig in, and let the Ag-venture begin!

Food Security - Feeding the World

For Erica Thew, a fourth-generation farmer on her family’s grain farm near Hussar, Alberta, farming is in her blood. Before she was even born, her rural roots began with her family and their dedication to feeding a hungry world.

Technology & Innovation

How are advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, robotics, autonomous vehicles and blockchain transforming the agricultural industry? We had a visit with Lakeland College to find out. 

Net Zero - Agriculture & the Environment

What pathways will lead towards a low-carbon and resilient agriculture sector? We had a tour at Sunterra Greenhouse to learn more about Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) and its role in sustainable agriculture.

Careers

The Canadian Agricultural Human Resource Council (CAHRC) predicts 50,000 agriculture and food jobs will have to be filled in the next few years.

So what kind of careers are out there? We interviewed agriculture professionals to learn more about the roles they play in helping feed the world.
