This October we are celebrating Agriculture Month and the story of our food. The Ministry of Agriculture encourages the entire agricultural industry to share their chapter of the story with friends, family and consumers.
Sharing your story does not mean you need to set up a social media account, create a blog or give a classroom presentation. Everyone has the capacity to share their story in their own way with the end goal of people in the grocery store having a better understanding of what we do in agriculture, and why we do it. This could be something as small as when sharing your story at morning coffee or something larger like hosting an open house at your operation to give your community a firsthand look at modern agriculture.
Some of the groups that work alongside the Ministry in building public trust will also be celebrating agriculture this October and have tools and resources to help you celebrate too. Visit Agriculture More Than Ever to get some ag proud clothing, Agriculture in the Classroom to share your story with students, and Farm and Food Care Saskatchewan to see a list of events happening across Saskatchewan.
In addition, visit Our Food Has A Story to access resources that will help you celebrate your food story and share it with others. These new tools make it easy to get started, or if you are a veteran at sharing your story, build on existing efforts. If you have a great idea as to how to share your story let us know on social media by using the hashtag #OurFoodHasAStory.
