GRANDE PRAIRIE SAFE COMMUNITIES AND THE BARNYARD AND BOOTS PROGRAM
The Barnyard and Boots Program at the Grande Prairie Safe Communities site had a successful inaugural year reaching 1400 kindergarten to grade 8 students in 2014. Rural classes attend the Safe Communities site on a field trip where they learn about ATVs, large animals, grain, chemicals, and electrical safety inside their barn, the ‘Ag for Life Learning Corral.
“Our partnership with Ag for Life and their financial support to develop and deliver this program has allowed us to give rural children a hands-on learning experience so they can be safe on the farm,” says Stacy Keeping, Director of Grande Prairie and Area Safe Communities.
