Dear friends of Agriculture in the Classroom-Manitoba,

I asked AITC-M if I could write this message to ask you to support AITC-M with a donation personally.  

Jessica Canning sitting in tractor wheel wellAs a teacher and farmer, I see firsthand how AITC-M’s programs and resources have helped my students understand where their food comes from and why that’s important.  

When students make connections to universal experiences like food, their curiosity sparks. They put down their cell phones, stop chatting, and lean in, hungry to learn more.

Exploring agriculture in my classroom has brought geography, social studies, the environment, science, careers, and other subjects to life in exciting new ways. It’s opened my students’ eyes to how vital agriculture is to every facet of our world. 

I’m always encouraging my fellow teachers to sign up for AITC-M programs and resources. Word of mouth must be catching because demand is growing! Just look at AITC-M's beautiful annual report to see how many students and teachers AITC-M reached in 2023, thanks to the support of generous Manitobans like you! 

As a farmer, I believe in AITC-M. As an educator, I can't imagine teaching without it. I hope you’ll make a donation today and ensure AITC-M can reach even more teachers like me!  

A donation of $75 will create ag education experiences for an entire classroom of 25 students, just like mine. If you can afford more, consider donating enough to sponsor two classrooms! Or three! Or even an entire school! 

Donate Now!

I believe educators have the best job in the world. We stand at the forefront of change – for today and for generations to come. By supporting AITC-M, you are inspiring the future, too!  

With hope and gratitude,
