Amazing Agriculture Adventure: Animals

2023 Impact Report

Dear Supporters!

Thanks to your generosity, hundreds of Manitoba students enjoyed an Amazing Agriculture Adventure in Glenlea, Manitoba this October!  

Students learned about Manitoba’s livestock industry by visiting stations highlighting Dairy, Beef, Chicken, Eggs, Pork, Bees, Canola, Veterinary, 4H, and Watersheds. 

For many students, this was their first visit to a farm. For others, the experience deepened their understanding of where their food comes from, how animals are cared for, and why agriculture is so important in our daily lives. You made learning unforgettable!

“We got the great opportunity to come to this farm today. The kids have been loving it, and it fits in our curriculum really well. The stations are really enriching. It’s just a great experience for the kids to be here.” 
Ms. Goosen, teacher, Hampstead School 

“One of my students said, ‘I didn’t know there were different types of chickens - I thought a chicken was a chicken!’ Thank you for sharing your knowledge about where our food comes from!”
Carmen Lachance, teacher, École Assiniboine 

Quotes from Volunteers 

I love the opportunity to engage with students and encourage them to lean in with curiosity. It's not often they have the opportunity to see livestock or barns in person and answer their questions, so events like AAA are excellent experiences to encourage them to discover where their food comes from. 

Agriculture is so important and I think its great to have an organization that educates about it! 

The group that I hosted was from a school that has no budget for field trips like this. If there hadn’t been sponsorship available, these students wouldn’t have had the opportunity to visit the farm. They were engaged in the sessions and enjoyed running in the open grassy areas as we made our way from one area to the next – things that we and our farm children just take for granted. 

Seeing the students reactions when they learned that only 1% of the water in the world is freshwater was a memorable experience. They were always surprised and astonished! 

Kids were keen to listen to what we had to say, and their big brains were absolute sponges trying to soak up every bit of information they heard. 

The staff at AITC-M is amazing to work with, it's like being a part of a family! I felt as excited to be a part of it as the students were.
