Niagara Agricultural Education DayNiagara Agricultural Education Day
$25,000 - June 25, 2007

For many kids, this is a unique opportunity to get out into the country and speak with farmers about the important work that they do, deepening their understanding about our rural communities and lifestyles and helping them share with their families the importance of supporting healthy, local food systems.

The Lincoln County Fair has been around for over 150 years, but its newest addition, the Niagara Agri-Education Day, has already been successful in spreading valuable agricultural information to school children for the past three years.

From a delicious maple syrup tasting to a chat with beekeepers and a chance to see the baby animals up close, 400 students learn first-hand about agriculture in the Greenbelt during a special school day at the Lincoln Fair.
