Calling all elementary Social, Health, and Science Teachers! Do you have what it takes to explain the new Canadian Food Guide, sustainability, and environmental stewardship to your kiddos?

Do you struggle to convince kids pulses really are good for them and how to work them into their healthy diet?!? Come explore how both canola and pulses can spice your next class on plant growth, plus other various topics. Alberta Canola Producers and Alberta Pulse Growers present an interactive session about the significance of these commodities to agriculture and Alberta’s curriculum. Bring your best game face and join us for fun during our session!
