Celebrate Ag Day in March
This year National Agriculture Day will be observed on March 25. This marks the 41st anniversary of National Ag Day, which is celebrated in classrooms and communities across the country.
The 2014 theme is “Agriculture: 365 Sunrises and 7 Billion Mouths to Feed.”
For the past few years, Indiana has officially proclaimed March as “Ag Month,” giving Hoosiers a full 31 days to show their appreciation for agriculture. Indiana’s Family of Farmers, the outreach coalition of which IFB is an active member, will once again be working with food trucks and local growers to celebrate Ag Day at the Indiana Government Center.
Local Ag Day celebrations will be taking place across the state, and we’d like to remind you be sure to invite media to your events so they can give your efforts more exposure in the community. And don’t forget to send us your photos and event information so we can post them on the IFB Facebook page and website.
There will be a special addition to the Ag Day events taking place in our nation’s capital this year. Farmland, a documentary film by James Moll that chronicles the lives of six young farmers, has been scheduled as part of the March 25 activities.
