Delegation from the Netherlands

From the Delta Optimist.....



Some pretty comprehensive programming in place here that is for sure. We have a ways to go but Delta BC is getting there.

Lots of the kids want to drive tractors t the Farm roots mini-school!

We are going to make a strong effort to detail employment opportunities in the food economy at upcoming springtime job fairs.

Part of what we do with our kids in our school district is to teach them about the broader food economy. 1 in 8 jobs in Canada is related to the food economy.

It surprises me that in this day and age there is not coordinated programming at all levels of government to tie education and agriculture together. Why is that?

Lot's of jobs in the agri-food industry

Here is what they are doing in Ontario.....

Agriculture and Education

It is really interesting to see that other jurisdictions, in foreign countires no less, are interested in the new curriculum in British Columbia.

The Delta school district is doing a lot of really interesting things but integrating food, nutrition, and farming in to the curriculum is really cool!
