Volunteer for #CALM23
Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month is about connecting students with people in agriculture. Every March ag volunteers from across the province are matched with classrooms, providing students with the opportunity to build a personal connection to agriculture. YOU could be that connection.
New this year, volunteers will be entered into a draw for a copy of ‘A Harvest Story’ and matching mug, currently only available to teachers. TWO draws will be made, one for NEW volunteers this year and one for returning volunteers!
Sign up by January 31st:

"The YRHS looks forward to attending this event every year. To be totally honest its one of the best days of the year." - Roby Sharpe, Yorkton Regional High School.
