#IGrowYourFood on Social Media

By using the hashtag #IGrowYourFood and tagging us on social media, people around the world joined the global action day last September. #IGrowYourFood also creates evergreen content you can share to create awareness on any topic related to sustainable farming.

Join the discussion by using #IGrowYourFood on your posts.

What is #IGrowYourFood?

There are many things connecting people the world over. Food is one of then. We all have to eat! But what about those who grow our food.

How much do we know about the challenges they face and understand the work that goes into producing what we consume?

Why we do it?

“I want to encourage farmers to create awareness of the importance of organic farming while we solicit funds for the government to support us. Farmers, #organic is life!”

“In my country, we procure most of the food from other countries, so there’s a campaign to promote local produce. I want to be part of that change! Let’s produce as much food locally as possible so that, at the end of the day, we can be food secure.”
