Celebrate agriculture all year long for Canada’s big birthday
We were so impressed with how Canadian agvocates showed up to celebrate our country and our industry on July 1. Even though the hoopla surrounding has since quieted down, let’s keep the positive momentum going by celebrating Canada 150 and Canadian agriculture and food at every opportunity.
1. Start a conversation, share a moment
It could be as simple as sharing your Canadian ag moments in a photo, blog post or video, like Saskatchewan rancher Adrienne Ivey did with her video of a beaver herding cattle or Ontario farmer Sandi Brock’s Sheepishly Me vlog where she shares stories about sheep, family and farming.
2. Great content you can easily share on social media
Here are some Ag More Than Ever resources you can easily publish to get the conversation started:
3. Videos celebrating 150 years of agriculture
Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s Canada 150 video celebrates our past and looks forward to a bright ag future.
For a historical perspective, check out Farm and Food Care Saskatchewan’s video: Celebrating 150 Years of Canadian Food.
See what’s new on our YouTube channel where we highlight more great industry videos.
4. Not connected on social media?
How about hosting a barbeque featuring Canadian food, or holding an open farm to connect with locals or visitors in your area? Show how you feed Canada and the world.
Share your ideas
The opportunities to put Canadian ag in the spotlight are only limited by your imagination. Do you have an idea? Share it with us on social media or send us an email.
