CITY SLICKERS is a program of the Multicultural Heritage Centre, Stony Plain.
City Slickers is a powerful learning experience provided to 1200 urban children who experience first hand what it’s like to be on a working farm;
• to see where their food comes from
• to listen to commodity groups and commercial businesses involved in processing and producing food,
• to meet and listen to the farmers themselves,
• to learn how farmers are stewards of their land, their animals and the environment in producing safe food for us.
It was an amazing learning experience for all, and we were even interviewed on CTV News!!
