Wheat Harvest Documentary Launches National Ag Day EventsFri, 31 Jan 2014 15:38:56 CST
In collaboration with the Agriculture Council of America, independent filmmaker Conrad Weaver of ConjoStudios, LLC., announces that the Great American Wheat Harvest documentary film will make its national premiere screening at the 41st Annual National Agriculture Day on Tuesday, March 25, in Washington, D.C.
The film’s GAWH National Premiere Screening & Breakfast Reception will kick off the National Ag Days activities from 8:30 to 11 a.m., at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian, which is located on the National Mall between the Smithsonian’s National Air & Space Museum and the U.S. Capitol Building. Seats are limited and you must RSVP for this event at: https://gawhpremiere.eventbrite.com
“We couldn’t be more honored or pleased to work with the Agriculture Council of America to make our national debut at National Ag Day possible,” Weaver says. “We are so grateful for all of our sponsors and collaborative partners who provided the resources to help bring this film to the consumer.”
The Great American Wheat Harvest documentary film focuses on connecting consumers to those who produce their food and will feature stories of North America’s wheat growers and custom harvesters.
Weaver says the film’s message aligns with the National Ag Day nationwide effort to tell the true story of American agriculture and remind citizens that agriculture is a part of all of us. A number of producers, agricultural associations, corporations, students and government organizations involved in agriculture are expected to participate.
The theme for National Ag Day is "Agriculture: 365 Sunrises and 7 Billion Mouths to Feed.”, and is celebrated in classrooms and communities across the country. Other major events hosted by the Agriculture Council of America in the nation’s capital include the Mix-and-Mingle Luncheon and the National Celebration of Agriculture Dinner. Additionally, about 100 college students will be in Washington, D.C., to deliver the message of Ag Day to the Hill. Check www.agday.org for more information on National Ag Day 2014.
