Farmers and everyone connected with food production are being encouraged to participate on Tuesday, February 13th.
The inaugural event ended up trending in the top five on Twitter last year.
"The intent is to bring together farmers and people who work in agriculture to encourage them to share their stories," says Candace Hill, manager of Agriculture More Than Ever. "We want to create a closer connection with people outside of agriculture about where food comes from and how it is produced."
The message will be spread mainly through social media; Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
"With less than three per cent of people having a direct connection to a farm, there are a lot of misconceptions about food production and farming. This is a great opportunity for farmers to share their story and help create connections that explain what they do."
While the number of farmers is relatively small, an estimated one in eight Canadians are employed in the food sector that includes processors and retailers.
Individuals in urban areas can also participate by making a meal and sharing it on social mead using hashtags like #CdnAgDay and #FarmLife.
Canada's Agriculture Day will feature a marque event in Ottawa, but there will also be smaller gatherings across the country. One example is a farm with sheep, llamas and goats in the Shell Lake area, about 150 kilometres north of Saskatoon.
"(The farmer) is inviting friends and neighbors to come to her farm, look at the animals and have some coffee. There will also be a conversation on farming and food production."
