Blair’s Agvocacy

As a company, Blair’s is committed to being an active participant in agvocacy efforts. Agvocacy efforts can be thought of as actions and behaviors that work to promote facts and information about the agriculture industry.

Blair’s participated in Canadian Agriculture Literacy Month (CALM) organized by Agriculture In The Classroom (AITC) in 2017 for the first time. Several Blair’s ag retail locations visited elementary schools to help students learn about, connect to, and understand agriculture. We believe that Blair’s Family of Companies has a responsibility to share and engage with youth and consumers about where their food comes from. We once again had retail locations participate in CALM 2018.

In 2017, Blair’s hosted Food Farms at our Lanigan and Watrous locations where we had over 200 elementary students attend both events. Food Farms provide students an opportunity to learn about where their food comes from through actively participating in the seeding, growing, and harvesting of foods along with educational learning stations. We believe it is important to provide learning opportunities to youth and expose them to the agriculture industry so they learn how their food is produced and understand how it gets onto their kitchen tables.

If you have an agvocacy effort that you think Blair’s should know about or be a part of please bring it to the attention of Kayla Hordos, Talent Development & Marketing Specialist, by emailing her detailed information to kayla@blairs.ag.
