Aug. 13, 2013, Ontario – An organization to protect farmland and water resources has launched in Ontario.
The mandate of the program, called Food and Water First, is to protect Class 1 farmland and source water regions. The group is made up of rural and urban citizens who value Ontario’s agricultural soils and water resources, and the need for preservation, according to a press release from the Ontario Federation of Agriculture.
“Together, organization partners encourage the Ontario government to adopt a ‘food and water first’ policy so the agricultural sector and source water regions are given priority in land-use planning,” the release states.
