3 minute read

Ag Rocks Text

Ag Rocks For Charity is a cool initiative.

Nick Saik puts his massive skills to good work in this video showcasing some harmonica riffls along with a fine pitch for donating to his charity of choice Agriculture In The Classroom. Nick is our partner in Todayville Agriculture and we are cheering him on in his quest to raise $5 grand. Or as he puts it, “…Teaching Kids by Beating My Dad…”.

It’s part of the AG Rocks For Charity initiative, a fun component of the Farm Forum Event, a 3 day conference in Saskatoon, SK (Dec. 3rd to 5th). The video tells you all about how passionate Nick is about laying a fiscal beating on his pa.

AG ROCKS FOR CHARITY is a highlight of the weekend.  Here’s how it works.  Some very talented volunteers compete to raise the most money and profile for their charity of choice. Click here for the entire talent line up, other important links, and more information.

We’re excited about all of the performances, but in particular, we’re pushing our own hometown hero Nick Saik.

As noted, Nick’s charity of choice is  Agriculture In The Classroom. In Nick’s words, “…helping kids get excited about food production is critical for the long term public trust of agriculture, and nobody is better at giving kids good information than Ag In The Classroom…”

We’ve heard Nick perform before, and recently caught him strumming his guitar and brushing up on some Garth and The Band.  From what we’re hearing, his interpretations of Friends in Low Places and The Weight are certainly worthy of the price of admission right there.

Nick’s also a talented filmmaker. If you want to see some of his handiwork, check out this story featuring a brilliant short video he produced called “Nut Milking Exposed”, now viewed well north of 50 million times.

The Farm Forum Event is a three-day conference that brings together progressive farmers, agricultural professionals and academics to learn about where game-changing innovation and the latest AG research connects with practical on-farm operations.

Here’s a short promotional video for Ag Rocks for Charity (also produced by Nick – like I said, he’s a talented guy.  Help him out please!

Please consider donating – Agriculture in the Classroom is a great initiative.  Or maybe you need a vacation.  Check out this cool travel story on Todayville Red Deer.

Why We Fear The Food We Eat

Welcome to The Food Fear Series. Our intention with this series is that you will fear less, and enjoy more, the food you eat.

This first video tackles the way our brains sift through the dizzying array of messages we see in food marketing. Our brains have built-in shortcuts that help us navigate a complex world, but sometimes these mental shortcuts can cause problems too. Welcome to the world of heuristics and cognitive bias.

The Food Fear Series is a collaboration between Know Ideas Media and Futurity Food, and is based on the work of Jack Bobo. Jack is an internationally recognized food futurist and speaker. He was named by Scientific American as one of the 100 most influential people in biotechnology. Jack does an excellent job of presenting complicated information in a way we can all understand, and the team at Know Ideas Media couldn’t be happier to collaborating with Jack and Futurity Food.

This video is based on the article Why We Fear The Food We Eat (Or, Why You Shouldn’t Trust Your Brain), which is available here:…/…/10/why-we-fear-the-food-we-eat/
