  • The Stony Plain Multicultural Heritage Centre City Slickers program is a powerful one-day event that introduces more than 1,200 grade 4 and 5 students annually to the many facets of agriculture and draws in some 250 volunteers. Children develop an understanding and appreciation for food firsthand – where it comes from and how it is produced – from gate to plate. The City Slickers Program brings together  farmers, producers and consumers. With the continuing support of Ag for Life, a scalable delivery model has been developed.
