The St. Albert grain elevators tell a story about agriculture and change over time in the community. In small groups we work our through the elevators and discover how they worked, what grains were stored in them and how grains were measured. We will also work in the gardens, where there is always work to be done! Using their creativity, each student will create an item to take home to help remember their day at our site.
