Get ready to share your story on Canada's Ag Day 2020

A day designed to celebrate all things agriculture is less than a month away. Canada’s Ag Day is February 11th, and organizers encourage everyone involved in agriculture to participate either online or in their community.

Clinton Monchuk, who farms just south of Saskatoon and is also the executive director of Farm and Food Care Saskatchewan, says “Canada’s Agriculture Day is really a day that from coast to coast, we want people to talk about agriculture. Everything about agriculture, it could be your food, it can be farmers talking about how the food is grown, ranchers talking about their cattle, people involved in animal agriculture — whatever it is, to just talk about what they’re doing.”

Agriculture More Than Ever first launched the day of recognition nearly  three years ago, and according to Monchuk it’s really taken off, as more and more people get involved each year. That being said, the more people use the hashtag #CdnAgDay on Twitter, along with liking and sharing tweets, the more traction it gets — which mean more people will see posts on their social feed.

He says last year Farm and Food Care Saskatchewan partnered with the University of Saskatchewan’s College of Agriculture and Bioresources to set up different displays within the main entrance of the university that showcased the world of agriculture.

“When students came in, they kind of had to go through the area, a lot of art students, dentistry, medical — whoever it was stopped and asked questions and we had interactive displays (such as) VR goggles, or the ability to talk to farmers about how they’re growing the food,” he says.

This year they’ll be doing somewhat of the same display, but also adding a free lunch and learn — because what student doesn’t love free food?

No matter your part in agriculture, it’s easy to get involved, Monchuk says, and he encourages those to do so come February 11th.
