Bruderheim Agricultural Society -
Tried and True or New, our projects and events are the best!
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.
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-
In an ecosystem, each organism has its own niche or role to play, in particular our younger generation!.
Environmental Benefits of Planting Trees. Trees are like the lungs of the planet. They breathe in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen. Additionally, they provide habitat for birds and other wildlife. They add to the beauty of our community with their flowers, leaves and fruit.
Butterflies, birds, beetles, bats, wasps and even flies are important in the pollination process. But despite the importance of pollinators, they are taken for granted all too often. ... Pollinators are vital to creating and maintaining the habitats and ecosystems that many animals rely on for food and shelter.
It has often been said that bees are responsible for one out of every three bites of food we eat. Most crops grown for their fruits (including vegetables such as squash, cucumber, tomato and eggplant), nuts, seeds, fiber (such as cotton), and hay (alfalfa grown to feed livestock), require pollination by insects.

Working in the garden has other, less spiritual rewards. In addition to being a source of fresh, healthy produce, gardening can ease stress, keep you limber, and even improve your mood. It’s been said that gardening is “good for the soul”.
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.
