Wednesday, July 28, is World Nature Conservation Day. Join Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn for the Living Lab: Atlantic Virtual Field Trip. Hit the virtual road to various Living Lab: Atlantic sites throughout Prince Edward Island and learn about the vital role that agriculture scientists and farmers have in protecting the environment and supporting sustainable farming.

Living Lab: Atlantic is part of the Living Laboratories Initiative, a new approach to agricultural innovation in Canada, which brings together farmers, scientists and other collaborators to develop and test innovative practices and technologies. Through a nationwide network of Living Labs, the initiative focuses on innovative solutions to environmental issues related to agriculture, such as climate change, soil health, water quality and biodiversity. The goal of the Living Labs Initiative is to accelerate the development and adoption of sustainable practices and technologies by Canadian farmers.

Judith Nyiraneza, AAFC Living Lab: Atlantic co-lead scientist, will be one of several collaborators featured throughout the day.
