When did you last consider including canola and pulses in your plans to explain Alberta's geography and varying vegetative regions? Do you struggle to convince kids pulses really are good for them and how to work them into their healthy diet?!? Come explore how both canola and pulses can spice your next class on plant growth, plus other various topics. Alberta Canola Producers and Alberta Pulse Growers present an interactive session about the significance of these commodities to agriculture and Alberta's curriculum.
