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. With every edition, students are engaged in real-world topics while learning from a variety of experts. Publications are a springboard to active thinking and learning and can be part of formal instruction or used as independent reading.
