Calling all budding farmers! Good in Every Grain is a new program by the Grain Farmers of Ontario that aims to inspire grade school students to learn about where their food comes from, the types of grains grown in Ontario, and how plants develop. Children can now request a grain kit that contains soybean or wheat seeds, a soil wafer, a germination cup and a how-to-guide for parents at their local Haldimand County Library branch.
Parents are encouraged to request a kit early, as supplies are limited. Simply fill out the e-mail form at HaldimandLibrary.ca and select ‘Grain Kit Request’ from the drop-down list. Alternatively, parents can call their local branch at 289-674-0400 to request a kit.
Make sure to include your phone number and indicate which library branch you would like to pick-up your kit. Library staff will call you when your kit is ready and arrange a curbside appointment.
