Roots of Bruce in Walkerton


Grade 5 and 6 students learn about agriculture.


Walkerton is the place to be if you want to learn about agriculture.

Hundreds of grade five and six students are taking part in this years Roots of Bruce Project tomorrow and Wednesday.

That is where the students are given a crash course about the role agriculture plays in the region and where their food actually comes from.

Danielle Snyder is one of the organizers of the event and says the project is there to help the students understand more about agriculture.

Snyder says the students attend either a morning or afternoon session and are split up into small groups that then see 8 different presentations.

She says not all the students will see every presentation, but its hoped when they return to class, they will share their experiences with their classmates.

Former newspaper reporter Jim Algie also received the Award of Merit.
