Royalties from the sale of All the Farmers You Will Know will be donated to Agriculture in the Classroom Canada.
CALGARY, AB – (May 17, 2023) – WS, the outcome-based marketing consultancy with a passion for AgTech, has released a children’s book aimed at sparking the next generation’s interest in agriculture and inspiring curiosity about where their food comes from. All The Farmers You Will Know was written with parents in mind, to share stories about the outstanding farmers and ranchers across North America while promoting diversity and inclusion within the industry.
“WS is dedicated to serving North American farmers and thrives on delivering expert insights that advance the adoption of AgTech and modern farming practices,” said Diane Bures, chief growth officer at WS. “As a result, we understand the importance of starting conversations about agriculture when future consumers – our children – are young. That’s why we wrote this book – to inspire the next generation and introduce them to the exciting world of agriculture.”
All the Farmers You Will Know introduces a group of farmers who represent the great diversity found in modern agriculture. As a North American marketing practice, the WS team recognizes that the many cultures, ethnicities, practices, and families who actually farm the land are underrepresented in much of the marketing and media about farming. In this book, stereotypes about farming and farmers are challenged. An array of ethnicities, family structures, farm businesses, and farming practices are represented and celebrated.
Royalties from All The Farmers You Will Know will be donated to Agriculture in the Classroom Canada (AITC-C), a non-profit organization that aims to introduce agriculture to every classroom. Working in collaboration with ten provincial member organizations, AITC-C offers up-to-date, well-balanced, and curriculum-aligned resources for students in all grades.
“AITC-C is thrilled to be the recipient of these donations, as this children’s book aligns strongly with our values,” said Sara Shymko, AITC-C’s Acting Executive Director. “As an organization, we strive to create meaningful connections between students in Canada and where their food comes from. All the Farmers You Will Know will serve as inspiration for students to want to help write Canada’s agriculture and food story.”
All The Farmers You Will Know is available for purchase on Amazon. With its focus on the diverse people who grow the food we eat, the book will inspire and educate readers of all ages.
