The Bruderheim Agricultural Society, Town of Bruderheim, Thiels Greenhouses, Royal Bank of Canada, Lamont County Food Bank and Lamont County Family and Community Support Services joined together and provided funding and resources such as:  plants, soil, staff and volunteers, to create 16 pallet gardens of vegetables.

The Buderheim Ag Society took on the responsibility of caring for the gardens at Walker School once they were planted.

Bruderheim youth and their families participated in an activity in which they were able to learn about reptiles and insects that provide pollination to plants during the building of these gardens.  This was a hands on activity and the children were able to participate after they planted vegetables in their pallet gardens.

A second educational activity for teaching children about insects, reptiles, the pollination of plants was hosted by the Bruderheim Ag society in July 2016 when the youth were participating in summer camps.  This group of children also helpwed water the plants and had an opportunity to taste vegetables such as beans, tomatoes, herbs, lettuce and carrots....home grown.  For some of these youth, this was a new experience for them.

The Ag Society recognizes and reflects the importance of private and government initiatives across the world to address and investigate pollinator decline through education.   Our youthful residents need to be taught the importance of the ecosystem and what it is comprised of.  It is very important that young people understand where their food comes from and its dependence on the eco system that enables that food to be put on their plates at home.

We believe that if the younger generation loses this understanding, it can lead them to take man’s most precious helpers in nature for granted.  They need to realize the importance of other living species and respect that we need them to thrive in their portion of the cycle of life so that we can thrive in ours.





We Can All Help!
We can all help, by supporting pollinator conservation initiatives, and growing plants and flowers for pollinators. Think twice before using
pesticides, and take a look at these 10 tips to help save the bees, many of which will be beneficial to insects and insect pollination as a whole. You can also ask your council to get involved.



Knowledge And Hands on Experience to Teach the Importance of Agriculture and the Ecosystem and our Community

An ecosystem includes all of the living things (plants, animals and organisms) in a given area, interacting with each other, and also with their non-living environments (weather, earth, sun, soil, climate, atmosphere).
In an ecosystem, each organism has its own niche or role to play, in particular our younger generation!.

What We Learn Together

What we did in 2016

The Bruderheim Ag Society has plans for further educational programs for our residents and our youth to help our community sustain its efforts to beautify and nurture our environment.
We can all help, by supporting pollinator conservation initiatives and by growing plants and flowers for pollinators to do their job! Think twice before using
pesticides and take a look at the 10 tips to help save the bees, many of which will be beneficial to insects and insect pollination as a whole. You can also ask your council to get involved.
