Seeking “Ask a Farmer” participants to speak with museum visitors as part of a one-day activity, “Agriculture on the Move.”
The message below is from Riley Pagett, director of advocacy & government relations at The National FFA Organization.
As you may know, the National FFA Organization has a unique relationship with the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. On Saturday, October 28, the Smithsonian National Museum of American History is hosting the third annual Food History Festival. We’re seeking “Ask a Farmer” participants to speak with museum visitors as part of a one-day activity we’re calling “Agriculture on the Move.” It will explore how different foods came to the US and changed over time. The National FFA Organization and the Smithsonian National Museum of American History will have tables about apples, avocados, chickens, tomatoes, watermelons, and wheat with exhibits about the history and migration of each.
We want to share voices and perspectives from FFA alumni, agriculturists and advocates today: if you can speak to the experience of growing any of these commodities, or if you are from a region where one or more of these is prevalent, we want to talk to you! Even if you can’t be at the event in person, we might share a quote or story from you.
When: Saturday, October 28, 2017 for any hour(s) between 11am-4pm according to your availability – do not need to be present for the entire time.
Where: National Museum of American History, 2nd floor lobby (Flag Hall)
Who: You, joining museum education interns and FFA members who will be prepared to speak about the history and maps on view
What: Talk about agriculture in America today with some of the 20,000 people who are expected to visit the museum as they stop by the activity tables
For participating, the Smithsonian will thank you with one complimentary ticket for Saturday night’s Food History After Hours event at the museum about the history of beer and migration in America, with included food and drink.
Please email Katharine Mead at MeadKa@si.edu to learn more, and please Cc me at rpagett@ffa.org. Thank you!
