  • Nutrien is a leader in an environmental education program called, Caring for our Watersheds (CFW). CFW asks youth to submit an essay proposal that answers the question, “What can you do to improve your watershed?” Students research their local watershed, identify an environmental concern and come up with a realistic solution. Cash rewards are given to participating schools, clubs and students. The success of the program is attributed to turning the student’s ideas into action. Community partners from around the world have joined together to mentor, inspire and guide students. Nutrien offers implementation funding and has contributed to over 275 projects to date.

  • 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.
