Farm and Ranch is a province-wide agricultural safety initiative that will provide Alberta farms and ranches with agricultural best practices knowledge and training, in one location.
Farms will have an industry standardized safety program that can be customized to suit the individual needs of each farm and ranch operation.
WALK THE FARM
is being created as a teacher resource for the Green Certificate Program in Alberta high schools. It will modernize the Green Certificate Program safety resources to enable teachers to convey this vital component of the farming industry to tech savvy students.
Walk the Farm will be provided free of charge to all Alberta High Schools to ensure that all Green Certificate students have access to this resource.
Walk the Farm is being developed in partnership with Stephen Schultz of Lacombe Composite High School. Mr. Schultz is the 2019 Recipient of the Prime Ministers Award for Teaching Excellence. Safety FX is honored to be creating this teacher resource in partnership with Mr. Schultz.
MICHENER CITY STUDIOS
This project will repurpose the Michener North site in Red Deer, Alberta (abandoned since 2013) into a movie and film production location (Michener City Studios) that would be the largest of its kind in the world, putting Red Deer and Alberta on the world movie production map and attracting film makers from around the world.
With 120 acres of trees, grass and wetlands, as well as 40 acres of building development, there are unlimited choices and possibilities for film sets and production studios.
In partnership with the Safety FX Centre the site will also be utilized to create and deliver revolutionary immersive safety, training and hands-on learning experiences.
In partnership with Alberta Online, an industry supplier data base is being created that will promote local actors, screen writers, film producers and film industry businesses to the world.
Michener City Studios will propel Red Deer and Alberta to become leaders in the film and movie industry while preserving the existing beauty and quality of life presented by the site – for generations to come.
The project is designed to be off-grid with a net zero carbon footprint.
