“Peak of the Market Growers recognize the importance of education. Understanding how food is planted, grown and harvested is paramount to ensure the public is aware of the significance agriculture plays in all of our daily lives. Without food, we can not live. Our vision at Peak of the Market is to ensure that all Canadian fill half their plates with fresh produce. It all starts with educating young people on the basics of growing food, which in turn, creates educated adults who support our important agricultural industry,” said Pamela Kolochuk, CEO, Peak of the Market, in a statement.
Resources covering 20 Manitoba agricultural commodities have been released so far, with more on the way.
