AgScape ~ Educate and Inspire
Check their Website and Social Platforms for updates and details.
2022 Welcome Back Ontario Teachers! AgScape is here to support you and your students with free food literacy & farming lessons and resources.
A world where the agri-food sector is recognized as a vehicle for positive social, economic, and environmental impact.
We empower Ontario students with impartial and accurate information to increase awareness of the agri-food system and ignite interest in related careers.
WHY WE DO IT:
- Lack of consumer knowledge about food and farming systems is a contributing factor to the economic challenges facing Ontario’s agri-food industry.
- Myths about food and farming constantly challenge the growth and progress of the agri-food industry
- Educating students about food and farming can help dispel myths, create a deeper interest and connection to food, and promote local (Canadian) food.
- There is a disconnect between the agri-food industry and consumers
- Agriculture is currently not recognized as a separate subject within the Ontario curriculum
HOW WE DO IT:
- Creative programming connects food, farming, and health, expanding the profile of Ontario’s agri-food sector.
- We collaborate with partners to deliver education programming that excites students and teachers, and encompasses all food production systems in Ontario.
- We connect classrooms with agri-food perspectives that increase understanding, encourage critical thinking, and stimulate dialogue.
In 1991, Ontario Agri-Food Education was founded to promote agriculture and food learning in the classroom.
AgScape (registered incorporation name Ontario Agri-Food Education Inc.) is a registered charity incorporated under the Agricultural and Horticultural Organizations Act of Ontario. The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs provides partial funding in support of AgScape’s programs and services.
