GRANDE PRAIRIE SAFE COMMUNITIES AND THE BARNYARD AND BOOTS PROGRAM
The Barnyards & Boots program is Grande Prairie & Area Safe Communities’ signature farm safety program. Designed to teach rural children how to be safe on the farm, this vital program covers a variety of topics including grain, ATV, water/dugout, sun, chemical and animal safety. Each topic has interactive elements that are delivered within the Ag for Life Learning Corral.
The goal is to expand from its original community of Grande Prairie to communities across Alberta.
“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 Carla Boyne, Director of Grande Prairie and Area Safe Communities.
