Ag day on Women’s day, or vice versa

You couldn’t make this up.

The Donald Danforth Plant Science Center has just reproduced an announcement about Ag Day 2012, which will take place on 8 March. As it so happens, that day is also International Women’s Day. What a great opportunity, then, to celebrate the huge contribution that women around the world make to growing food, nourishing their families, and selling their surplus to others. Does Ag Day offer any of that? Does it heck. Will we be able to do any better? That depends.
