Grown in Grey is an agricultural based educational event that is held away from the classroom. The usual venue is an arena. This allows the accomodation of a large number of children and different learning "stations".
The objective of Grown in Grey is to further educate children, specifically those in grade five, about what is happening in agriculture and related industries in our region. Grown in Grey is run by a group of core volunteers and is a not for profit organization. This event is made possible by the co-operation of a large number of organizations, commodity groups, farmers, educators and individuals interested in the many facets of agriculture.
Over the past 20 years we have had over 11,000 Grey County students visit our event and each of them came away with a better understanding of agriculture and how it is part of the fabric of Grey County.
With the closure of the Chatsworth Arena, Grown in Grey 2018 will move to the Desboro Community Centre located at 136205 Grey Rd. 40 in the village of Desboro. The dates will be April 17th and 18th. Would you like to register your class for Grown in Grey?Registration
