Creating a unique learning experience every month by bringing Agriculture to Life!
Nourishing Minds is a monthly subscription program that coordinates with a yearly learning calendar.
A diverse number of topics are explored, encouraging grade 7–12 and post-secondary students to think critically about agriculture and the role it plays in their lives. The series can be woven into curriculum areas such as: English, math, foods, social studies, CALM, AGR 3000 and science.
The program is centred around our monthly educational publication with supplemental learning videos, lesson plans and challenges designed and available to encourage students to dig deeper into agriculture and food production.

Publications are a springboard to active thinking and learning and can be part of formal instruction or used as independent reading.

The Food Value Chain
A food value chain requires the participation of many diverse stakeholders working together under a common goal to add value to a food product. Who are these stakeholders and what roles do they play in getting our food
from farm to fork?
Currently, around one-third of all food produced worldwide is either lost or wasted, making it one of the largest problems facing the world today.
The agriculture and food sector is at the leading edge of research and innovation to address global challenges. There are endless opportunities which will allow young minds to make a difference.
