This resource was originally designed as a handbook to provide BC specific agriculture information for teachers of all grades. This handbook is now available in downloadable PDF form only, and has been broken into sections to allow teachers to access the information more easily.

This first section provides suggestions on how to use this resource in your classroom and an introduction to BC's agriculture sector including: Industry Profile, Industry Significance, General Statistics, the History of BC's Agriculture, Nutrition, and Food Safety and Quality on the Farm.
