New Online Resource Launched for Supportive Agriculture Curriculum in NB Classrooms

Agriculture in the Classroom New Brunswick (AITC-NB), administered through the Agriculture Alliance of New Brunswick, is launching a new website that connects teachers in New Brunswick to curriculum resources and support for agriculture education. The website: also serves to assist students with scholarships and support for careers within agriculture and food production. Farmers who are interested in working with local teachers or volunteering for AITC- NB initiatives, can also use the website to identify opportunities.

AITC-NB's goal is bring agriculture into every classroom across the province. The website support teachers and make incorporating agriculture education into classrooms easy and enjoyable.

Funding for this initiative is provided by the Canadian Agricultural Partnership through the Government of Canada and Department of Agriculture, Aquaculture and Fisheries.

The Canadian Agriculture Partnership is a five-year, $3-billion investment by federal, provincial and territorial governments to strengthen and grow Canada's agriculture, agri-food and agri-products sectors. This includes a $2-billion commitment that is cost-shared 60 per cent federally and 40 per cent provincially/territorially.

The new website is one of many initiatives by AITC-NB to support agriculture education across the province. Through the online resources and program summaries, teachers can access and expand their curriculum while meeting provincial outcomes.

The website provides opportunities to explore our current programming including Little Green Sprouts, Little Green Thumbs, Spuds in the Tub, Career Case and Hydroponics with COVE. As a member of Agriculture in the Classroom Canada, there are links to our provincial partners and national programs with exceptional programs for teachers and students in New Brunswick.
