Alberta’s farms and ranches are home to so much more than livestock and crops. From dung beetles to deer, crocuses to spruce trees, countless wildlife species live and thrive on agricultural land. In fact, the more diverse a farm or ranch is in plants and animals the more agricultural producers benefit. It is a win-win for producers and ecosystems.

Learn how biodiversity helps with productivity, pest management and enduring floods and droughts. Develop the skills and tools necessary to help wildlife thrive on your land without sacrificing financial gains or productivity. Discover how the benefits of biodiversity also apply to diversifying the annuals you plant and the livestock you raise.

Rural Routes to Climate Solutions, Little Loaves Farm and Organic Alberta have teamed up to bring you a pay-what-you-can ($10 or less) workshop on how agricultural producers can protect, boost and benefit from biodiversity on their land.

This afternoon workshop will be led by experts in the field (to be announced soon) and Jerremie Clyde, owner of Little Loaves Farm. Jerremie and his wife Rita grow and maintain a mix of pasture, woodland, annual crops, and perennials with views to the Rockies in the West. They have been farming in Alberta for over a decade.  https://www.littleloavesfarm.com/

We hope you can join in Sundre for a day of fun, making new friends and learning how the interactions of wild and domesticated species are integral to a successful farm.

Date: June 23

Location: Sundre, AB
