A Little Something Sweet, at GPRC Bookstore! 





I am a PhD student at the University of Calgary’s Faculty of Veterinary Medicine (supervised by Dr. David Hall) investigating perceptions of water quality in rural Alberta associated with livestock. We are currently looking for participants for this study and are exploring gathering participants through targeting local county councils within the province. Would it be possible to circulate this message within your county to recruit any well water owners who may be interested?

Participants in this study will be asked to answer a questionnaire (approximately 20 min.in length) and submit a private water sample for microbiological testing (i.e., total coliforms and E. coli). To be eligible for this study a participant must be at least 18 years old and have a private water source (e.g., a water well, cistern) which they use for domestic purposes (e.g., drinking, washing, and cooking in the household).

The questionnaire will address demographic information, private water use, livestock attributes, and questions related to water quality and risk. A participant may complete the questionnaire in two ways: 

1. A paper questionnaire mailed to them.

2. An online questionnaire at the following link https://survey.zohopublic.com/zs/Bly0Y1

Classroom Agriculture Program (CAP)

What do volunteers do in CAP?
-Go into pre-registered classrooms across Alberta for 1 hour
-Use story-telling, hands-on props, and fun activities to teach grade 4 students about the importance of agriculture in our daily lives
-CAP provides training ideas, and guidance for volunteers
-The first presentation is about a 5 hour commitment - 4 hours of training and preparation followed by the presentation
-Training occurs in your area in February for spring classroom visits
Why volunteer for CAP?
-A strong agricultural industry leads to a strong and vibrant rural Alberta
-There is a growing disconnect, particularly in urban populations, between the farm and consumer. A greater understanding of where our food comes from will lead to greater support of agriculture
-CAP currently reaches about half the grade four students in Alberta, but with more volunteers could reach all students
- It's fun to work with the kids and you'll be well-supported!
To register as a volunteer, go to www.classroomagriculture.com, or get in touch with CAP General Manager Don George: 587-877-2544 or don.george@classroomagriculture.com


Due to municipal staff and council time constraints, the Hamlet and Non-Hamlet Residents meetings will not be held in late 2016 as planned. Please watch for notice of the meetings to be held in early Spring of 2017.
