Farm Radio Weekly

FRI featured in children’s magazine

The history and work of Farm Radio International was recently featured in a Canadian children’s magazine. The magazine is called KAYAK. It is Canada’s History Society’s magazine for young readers, aimed at children between 7 and 12. The issue which features Farm Radio International focuses on how Canada has worked and helped in communities across the world, and is called “Better World.”

One of our scripts (on sack farming) was adapted and made into a story. The next page in the magazine tells the story of Farm Radio International’s founder, George Atkins. At the following link on Canada History Society’s website, you can see a video interview with Louise Atkins, George’s daughter, and see more photos of George Atkins: http://www.canadashistory.ca/Education/The-New-Digital-History-Education-(2)/The-New-Digital-History-Education-(1).aspx

Twenty thousand copies of the magazine were distributed to schools across Canada. You can read it using these links:
