Discover The Farm

Discover the Farm is a multi-part event, taking place over three days. Featuring two Progressive Agriculture Safety Days®, the Poultry & Exotic Animal Market, Country Crafts & Rabbit Show, Discover the Farm truly is an event for all ages. 

 

Discover the Farm: A Farm Facts Experience - April 23 & 24, 2020

Schools in the area surrounding Swift Current, particularly the Chinook School Division & Holy Trinity School Division, are invited to attend this event on April 23 & 24, 2020. 

The Swift Current Ag & Ex has a goal - to promote agriculture awareness. Programs like Discover the Farm: A Farm Facts Experience have been developed (and are expanding every year) to encourage youth involvement in agriculture, as well as expand their knowledge of food production, farm safety, nutrition, and animal care. The Progressive Agriculture Safety Day® educates school aged children on the importance of safety and health lessons as they relate to life on the farm. These one-day events provide education, training, and resources to make farm, ranch, and rural life safer and healthier for children and their communities. The event includes interactive stations where the participants can learn about safety, food production, and the agriculture industry at 12 different stations (about 2 hours in length). 

Discover the Farm is a great opportunity to be a yearly field trip for your class, as new topics and components are added on a yearly basis. The Progressive Agriculture Safety Day® was added in 2013, followed by the Animal Health & Safety program in 2014. 

To book your class, please contact the Swift Current Ag & Ex office.   An application form with more detailed information is available. Please apply before April 9, 2020. Participating educators will receive resource activity packages.
