Farms at Work has just published a new short film spotlighting local farmers that produce fibre from sheep and alpacas. The film also looks at how the fibre is processed and sold locally to the community. Check out "From the Farm to You: The Story of Fibre in our Community" here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5j7CynnEFA It will be shown in 10 classrooms over the next couple of months. Students will have the opporutntiyto interact over Zoom with a farmer form the film so they can ask questions.
The film can also be viewed from the Local Food Peterborough website, where there are approximately 30 films covering the activities of farms in the region! https://localfoodptbo.ca/know-your-farmer-videos/
