AgriFutures Australia, the Graham Centre for Agricultural Innovation and Regional Development Australia (RDA) Riverina NSW will celebrate National Agriculture Day on Friday, 20 November 2020 online this year with a series of inspiring stories showcasing the people of agriculture.
National Agriculture Day is an initative by the National Farmers’ Federation and this year’s theme is #AgDayAU Bake Off. You’re encouraged to whip up a country classic, get the family or the community together, fold out the picnic table and chairs and raise cheers to all that is good about Australian agriculture and the people behind it.
The agricultural community is invited to join AgriFutures Australia, the Graham Centre and RDA Riverina on social media to celebrate the role of research and innovation in helping rural industries flourish and to better connect all Australians with agriculture.
AgriFutures Australia General Manager, Communications and Capacity Building, Belinda Allitt, said this year’s celebrations will be a little different to previous years.
“We are looking forward to celebrating National Ag Day in 2020 which unlike previous years will be a little different to the lunch we normally have under the lemon scented gum trees at Charles Sturt University.
“Over the five days leading up to Friday, 20 November we will showcase the breadth and depth of people who are playing a critical role in enhancing and developing our agricultural levied industries as well as those making a difference to the agricultural landscape, be it through innovation or new and emerging industries.
Get involved this National Ag Day
“To get everyone involved we have launched a hashtag #hatsofftoaussiefarmers across our social media channels and encourage you to use this hashtag and share the stories of the incredible, resilient farmers you know who inspire you,” said Ms Allitt.
