Happy December! With the holiday season approaching, it’s a great time to reflect on the issues that matter to us and how we can make a difference.
Today, you can support new and young ecological farmers across Canada.
Why ecological agriculture? Our farmers are working to grow good, clean, and fair food for their consumers. They are working to capture carbon in the soil through regenerative agriculture practices, to keep our air, water, and land safe. Ecologically focused farming works to preserve biodiversity, meaning putting the building blocks that nature intended back in place for a more resilient food system in the face of a changing climate.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 by December 31, 2019 to support programs in 2020.
As a Young Agrarians supporter, I know you understand the power of ecological agriculture towards tackling many of the big issues facing our world today.
Investing in the renewal of ecological agriculture in Canada is essential for tackling these issues. It mitigates climate change, ensures healthy working conditions for farmworkers, and stewards our planet for future generations.
Thank you for supporting people and the planet through ecological agriculture!
P.S. With people 35 and younger making up just 9% of Canada’s farmers, new farmers need your support now more than ever. Even $5 will make a difference – think of it like taking YA out for coffee!
