Organization: L’Académie de la Seigneurie – Casselman Ontario
Project Start Date: Spring2018
The next classroom built at a public school in Casselman will be three metres square, unheated, and full of hens.
The hen coop will be built in the spring at l’Académie de la Seigneurie, which goes from kindergarten to Grade 12.
“Here’s why. At school, we don’t want to have the children learn only from computers,” said Casselman’s mayor, Conrad Lamadeleine. “We would like them to have some knowledge of farming.
“So having hens’ nests at school will teach them: What is agriculture? What are hens? Why eggs? How do you raise them and what do you do with them?
“This experience is becoming more and more popular in Quebec and it’s just starting out in Ontario. It’s life experience we can give the children.”
