This video scavenger hunt will introduce you to the people, places and perspectives that shape our agricultural landscape. Inside Education will provide all the tools you need to explore curated content that features local agriculture projects, interviews with leading agriculture experts, video tours and simulations. This activity will be done individually or as a class with awesome prizes for top producers.
10:30 – 11:15 | Agriculture and Climate – Discussion & Expert Q & A
After you’ve explored ‘Discover Agriculture’ we will come back together to meet with experts who will share insights into agriculture and our role as stewards of the land. This dynamic conversation will focus on how climate change is changing how we produce food and other agricultural products. Be sure to come with questions!

Student leaders will share their story and explain how you can get involved!
The #GrowAlberta initiative took off in 2020 when a group of Alberta teachers and students worked together to get students growing all across the province.
