Food farm at Swift Current Research and Development Centre, Sept. 21, 2017

Written by 

Students returned to the food farm at the Swift Current Research and Development Centre on Sept. 21 to see what happened over the summer to the seeds planted there in the spring. The event was attended by 178 students from six schools in southwest Saskatchewan, who learned in a hands-on way about agriculture and food production. The students were from Gull Lake, Success, Waldeck, and Swift Current (École Centennial, Fairview and O.M. Irwin schools). This two-part educational program gave students an opportunity in the spring to participate in the planting of seeds and then to see the results in the fall. The initiative is coordinated by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture in association with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada's Swift Current Research and Development Centre and other industry partners.
