Red Deer Location "Celebrating the 2050 Challenge" Canada's Agriculture Day Open Forum

Will agriculture be able to meet the challenge of feeding 9.6B people by 2050?
Join us as we look at the changing face of farming, how technologies are revolutionizing agriculture and how society, being ever more disconnected from food production, will influence the tools, such as genetic engineering, farmers use as they work to ensure global food security.

Our speakers, Robert Saik Agrologist and Dr. David Zaruk, will show how technology is impacting agriculture and how society's perception of food production is creating real challenges on the farm.

We invite you to join us as we connect the public to the farming community to discuss the challenge of food production.

This event is hosted jointly by the University of Alberta faculty of Agricultural, Life and Environmental Sciences, Red Deer College, and Olds College.

Before The Plate documentary screening

Before the Plate attempts to close the gap in perception between the urban consumer and farming in Canada. Modern consumers are increasingly interested in where and how their food gets to them, but accurate information is hard to come by and often feels out of reach. Before the Plate follows young farmers and industry experts in order to show the general population what a modern Canadian farm operation looks like, and answer the most pressing questions consumers have about their food.

The film will follow food staples of the Canadian diet all the way from the farm to the harvesting and processing operations, and showcase the final product at Canoe, one of Toronto's most prestigious restaurants. The project follows various types of agriculture, including both organic and conventional practices to answer some of the biggest questions related to farming in our society.
