New national soil health campaign shares farmers’ stories
January 31, 2024 By Fruit & Vegetable
More Canadian farmers and ranchers are implementing regenerative practices on their farms, yet many Canadians still don’t know what regenerative agriculture contributes to Canada’s efforts to mitigate climate change while restoring biodiversity.
A new national campaign, Stories of Regeneration, aims to bridge the knowledge gap and foster relations between producers and consumers by showing how regenerative principles are being incorporated into diverse farming models within varying regional, economic and social contexts.
Created by Regeneration Canada, the first national non-profit to promote regenerative agriculture and soil health, the campaign evolved from a series of farm-to-table events held this past summer into what has now become a collection of films, podcast conversations, articles and webinars that shine a light on the many benefits derived from farming in a way that is good for the people and the planet.
The Regeneration Canada team, with support from Agriculture and Agri-Foods Canada through the AgriCommunication Program, is now proudly launching these stories featuring ten farmers from eight provinces, each representing operations with diverse production systems.
Registrations are open for the next set of free webinars:
- Regenerating Ourselves: Mental and Physical Health in Agriculture on Feb. 6;
- Regenerating Nutrition: Healthy Soils For Nutritious Food on Feb. 20;
- Regenerating Our Roots: Building Community And Honouring Culture Through Food on March 13.
