April 13, 2019

(SASKATOON, SK) Agriculture in the City proved to be a popular event again this year at the Mall at Lawson Heights. Ag in the City is a free family event that highlights the role agriculture plays in everyone’s daily lives. Attendees were able to learn about food, from how it's grown to how to prepare it), farming and the science of agriculture.

This year's event featured different activity zones, where people could hone their knowledge of food, crops and ag science, as well as get hands-on with educational activities. Attendees could extract DNA, learn how cattle are born, taste some locally produced foods and ask questions about where their food comes from.

On the main stage, Mark “Shack” Loshack featured Saskatchewan-produced products in cooking demos. Recipes, event listings and photos can be found on the event’s website at www.celebrateagriculture.ca. Ag in the City is a project of Farm & Food Care Saskatchewan and organized by a committee of stakeholders from across the province. Special thanks to SaskCanola for Sustainer Level support of this initiative.
