Our Farming Roots in Castor

Grades 3, 4, 5, 6

Since its beginning, the town of Castor has been involved in the agriculture industry. Many changes have been made in farm production. Residents of our community have wonderful stories of their lives in rural Alberta. A lot of these stories revolve around feeding the family. Recently there has been an interest in old varieties of seed and rare or old breeds of animals. These are referred to as Heritage Seeds and Breeds. In this project students learned about life in rural Alberta by interviewing local residents and recording their stories on a website.
