Power of partnership
Manitoba Canola Growers is dedicated to working with a variety of partners to amplify the voice of farmers through a strong community that works together to promote agriculture, farmers, and Canadian ingredients.
Farm to School Fundraiser
Back in action, the Farm to School Fundraiser will deliver Manitoba vegetables into homes through the profitable fundraiser offered to schools and licensed daycares in the province. Through our long-standing partnership with Manitoba Association of Home Economists, Peak of the Market and the Government of Manitoba, we will include a recipe booklet geared at helping families make the most of their veggies – while including canola oil in your kitchen.
Great Tastes of Manitoba TV show
Great Tastes of Manitoba is a collaboration of Manitoba’s leading commodity groups, bringing viewers a locally-produced television series that reaches more Manitobans each week than anything on the Food Network. Showcasing nutritious, affordable, delicious foods grown by Manitoba’s farmers, show presenters cook and share stories and tips about choosing and preparing these locally grown ingredients.
Watch us live on CTV Winnipeg at 6:30pm – November 13 with reruns airing February 26 and March 26 or catch up on missed episodes at GreatTastesMB.ca.
Agriculture literacy in schools
Manitoba Canola Growers is proud to work with various partners to promote agriculture literacy in schools, including Agriculture in the Classroom – Manitoba. We have expanded our partnership recently to work with teachers Shelley Gray and Emma Rathgeber, who specialize in writing and sharing teaching resources with their fellow teachers through the Teachers Pay Teachers platform. These Manitoba curriculum-connected projects provide teachers and parents with projects that not only reinforce real-life math, social studies, English language arts and science skills, but also teach kids about the important work on farms and in agriculture.
