The fall season is a wonderful time to celebrate the abundant harvest produced by Alberta farmers and enjoyed by consumers around the province and the world. Each year, Alberta’s Ag for Life organization celebrates Alberta’s harvest with a gala celebration of food, fun and music.
The 2016 Ag for Life Harvest Gala celebration will take place on Friday, October 21 in Calgary. This is the fifth year for the Gala, and the event is well-known for presenting a unique fusion of urban and rural style, plus a glorious range of delectable locally-produced foods. A silent auction will also be available to raise funds to support the important educational programs that Ag For Life spearheads in Alberta.
The Fifth Annual Harvest Gala
Friday, October 21, 2016
6 pm to 11 pm
Ag for Life is a not-for-profit organization committed to building a greater understanding and appreciation of Alberta’s agricultural industry, and its fundamental connection to life. The Harvest Gala is one way Ag for Life reaches out to Albertans to tell the story of our incredible industry in this province. Other Ag for Life success stories include: Classroom Agriculture Program, Little Green Thumbs, Alberta Open Farm Days, City Slickers, Rural and Farm Safety Days and the Rollover Simulator Project.
Two Alberta Federation of Agriculture (AFA) Directors, Marion Popkin and Tony Jeglum, attended the Ag For Life Harvest Gala in 2015, along with over 500 other attendees. AFA supports this important event in agriculture, and we share Ag For Life’s passion for agricultural advocacy.
“This event is a great way to bring Alberta farmers together with their urban neighbours,” says Jeglum. “We also appreciate the important leadership that Ag For Life provides in improving farm safety, and sharing the story of how agriculture impacts the lives of Albertans.”
