Education Day


Proudly sponsored by:

On Friday May 31st, 2024 the Brooklin Spring Fair invites you to join us for our Annual Education Day!

Brooklin Spring Fair’s Education Day is an excellent opportunity for Gr. 3 students to discover how agriculture impacts their daily lives through learning about agricultural commodities, as well as having the opportunity to participate in agriculture themed hands-on activities.

Please come and celebrate “We’ve Got A Good Thing Growing” with us this year! As part of our Education Day program your class is invited to come discover the amazing agricultural community that exists within Durham Region. Students will learn about various farm animals and have the opportunity to experience and try skills in line with our ‘Pioneer’ theme. Students will have the opportunity to learn about the importance of plant biodiversity in agriculture, sustainable animal by-products, alternative growing technologies, as well as participate in a live quilting bee using community-donated fabric and run by community quilters and sewers. Students will be led by community farmers and agricultural leaders to help encourage them to make lasting connections to their local agricultural community and to understand how their daily lives are affected by agricultural practices.

Our Education Day program is designed to reinforce the Gr. 3 curriculum and allow students the opportunity to apply their learning to real life situations.

Please refrain from registering your class to our event if you have already registered for Durham Farm Connections. Our events are very similar and we are hoping to expose as many different students to agricultural education as possible this year.
