    Are You Looking For a Safe, Educational, Fun Community Project to Teach Farm Safety?
    • If so, your community could be one of the more than 350 throughout the U.S. and Canada, who participate each year in the Progressive Agriculture Safety Day™ program.
    • The Progressive Agriculture Safety Day™ program trains and provides resources for local community volunteers to conduct hands-on, educational farm safety day for children. Communities chosen to participate in the program, receive one and one-half days of training for the lead coordinator; an in-depth, step-by-step manual; liability and excess medical insurance; publicity; welcome banners; copy-ready posters and certificates; take-home bags; and a t-shirt for each participant and volunteer.
    • While the national program provides a suggested framework, coordinators tailor their safety day to meet the specific needs of the local community. They choose the location, date, and hours; number and age of participants; and which topics are taught. They recruit other volunteers as needed to teach the topics, serve as group leaders, seek local donations, etc.
    • The program is run by the Progressive Agriculture Foundation with funding provided by numerous North American, state/provincial, and regional businesses and organizations.
    • To apply, or for more information, check the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association website, email, or call toll free 1-877-452-2272.
