AFA recently sponsored 6 schools in the Algonquin region to compete in a province-wide Envirothon event. Teams from North Bay, Renfrew, Muskoka/Haliburton and Lanark competed in the 4 day event held in May at Fleming College in Lindsay, ON. They were invited to explore issues of local and sustainable agriculture throughout the competition and also contributed to the Fleming College Community Garden.
