Aggie Days at the BMO Centre in Stampede Park, in Calgary.
This year we had over 10,000 schoolkids, their teachers,
supervisors, and parents come down for our educational program then last
weekend more than 35,000 visited us for family fun days! I and about
200 other volunteers, mostly from rural Alberta, take time out to teach
city kids a little more about Alberta's agriculture. We try to show them
exactly where their food comes from!
Aggie days 2013 was a banner year! We milked cows, sheared sheep, thrashed and milled grain, harnessed
horses, milk goats, and gave wagon rides. We taught them about draft
horses, cutting horses, miniature horses, horse anatomy, horse shoes,
It was a fun filled week but come Sunday, I was pooped! I've recovered now!
