March is Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month (CALM), a national celebration that takes place every March to share Canada’s rich agriculture and food story with students from kindergarten to Grade 12. 
CALM is administered by Agriculture in the Classroom Canada (AITC-C) and its 10 provincial partners with the goal of connecting students with farmers and other agriculture industry professionals. AITC organizations in each province offer uniquely different activities aimed at helping students learn about agriculture in an interactive and engaging way. 
A new storybook, All The Farmers You Will Know, will be introduced to younger students during CALM. Written by WS Marketing, it highlights the wonders of the modern farm, and the farmers and families who work and live on them. Youth are encouraged to visit to use an interactive new video tool to see themselves in a career in agriculture and food.   
This is the 13th year celebrating CALM across Canada. Over the last 12 years, CALM has been able to deliver over 680,000 student experiences, in 14,000+ classrooms thanks to the work of over 4,600 volunteers. 
Canada’s grasslands are home to farms and ranches that graze animals, helping to maintain this valuable ecosystem as the bison and other grazing animals once did. To celebrate CALM, the Canadian Forage and Grassland Association (CFGA) took a look around the web for books about grasslands and came across this great list
