A Discovery of Food and Farming Online
To help parents and teachers keep their children and students engaged and learning while at home or in class, Together with numerous partners, we are pleased to launch the brand new Camp AgScape, a discovery of food and farming online. Educators, check our our brand new Teacher's Guide. A great way to explore how to use Camp AgScape in the classroom as well as see how the world of food and farming connects with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals!
Youth can enjoy their online experience as a Honeycrisp, Alpaca, Evergreen or Clydesdale with a daily schedule of activities that will connect them to various agriculture and food themes including Caring for our Animals, Grown a Green Thumb, From Earth to Fork, and Become a Scientist. These weekly themes allow youth to develop essential agriculture and food literacy skills.
Whether it be experiments, games, recipes or exploring the world of food, youth will enjoy being apart of their virtual camp community. Each online camp is best experienced using a desktop computer or tablet.
AgScape acknowledges that we were founded on the traditional territory of many nations including the Haudenosaunee (Hoed-eno-show-nee) the Anishinabewaki (Awe-Nish-Nah-Be-Waki), the Attiwonderonk (At-ti-wan-da-ronk), the Mississauga (Mi-Suh-Saa-Guh) and Mississaugas (Mi-Suh-Saa-Guh) of the Credit First Nation; and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit, and Métis people. We are now a fully remote team with many representatives working across the land now called Ontario, and we acknowledge that there are 46 treaties and other agreements that cover the territory. We are thankful to be able to work and live in these territories. We are thankful to the First Nations, Métis and Inuit people who have cared for these territories since time immemorial and who continue to contribute to the strength of Ontario and to all communities across the province.
