"Lambton-Kent Agriculture in the Classroom" (LKAITC) committee is a group of volunteers committed to delivering curriculum based agricultural and food programs to youth in Lambton and Kent Counties free of charge.
The hands-on approach to learning used by the programs we are involved with are the key to the education process.
Increasing awareness of the agri-food industry continues to be the mandate of the committee. It is our belief that the students become better educated consumers in the future.
As farmers, we have failed in the past to tell our story, and this provides us with an avenue to do so.
LKDSB's Science Education Partnership Agricultural Division, who partners with LKAITC, have volunteers that are actively farming, and many have additional full-time jobs, either within or external to the agricultural sector.
Local farmers with this program are willing to visit classrooms to talk about agriculture related topics such as;
- Farm to Table
- Caring for Farm Animals
- Keeping Soil Healthy
- Growing Crops
- Sustainability on the Farm
If you want to participate, please have a month and topic in mind when you would like to have a farmer visit, and email the Science Education Partnership for more information: [email protected]
