Nutrien's Seed Survivor mobile classrooms return in spring 2023!

Seed Survivor is a free, curriculum-based education program that teaches children how to grow healthy plants and where their food comes from. The program tours North America year-round and will only be in Manitoba from April 17 - June 30, 2023.

Seed Survivor Mobile is a truck and trailer unit that arrives at pre-registered schools and children progress through interactive stations. Students spend half the presentation outside the trailer in a guided plant nutrient lesson and half the presentation inside the trailer playing each station. They explore multi-media and virtual reality games, interactive activities, talking walls and much more. Up to 30 students can participate in the display at one time and it takes one hour to complete. The 36-foot trailer is handicap accessible and includes an entry and exit door. All participants get to plant a sunflower seed to take home and grow! Last year we planted approx. 100,000 sunflower seeds with students across North America.
