About the Seed Kit

The new Manitoba Seed Kit will contain the seeds of 15 Manitoba fibre, forage, food and feed crops of provincial and/or national importance. Students and teachers will learn to recognize the crops, where they are grown, and processed in Manitoba, what they are used for, together with their nutritional properties, and their economic importance. The Seed Kit, available in French and English, will include a classroom book, a Teacher’s Guide and several classroom activities.

WHY?

Food connects us all to agriculture. Now more than ever, young
people deserve to know where their food comes from. The Manitoba Seed Kit will:

  • Increase public awareness of the important role of agriculture in Manitoba’s economy
  • Build public trust for agriculture production and processing activities
  • Support agriculture development opportunities, such as skills development and promotion of career opportunities in the agriculture and agri-food industries.

For who?

The Manitoba Seed Kit Teacher’s Guide and classroom activities will contain curriculum connections for students in grades 3-6. We will reach close to 20,000 students in the first year alone. The kit will then be used year after year, exponentially increasing its reach.

When?

The kit will first be distributed to grade 3-6 teachers who register for Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month (CALM) in March 2022. Following CALM, kits will be available to order on our website.
