By Ecological Farmers Association of Ontario

The Ecological Farmers Association of Ontario (EFAO) has announced it will be undertaking a three-year project to support and grow ecological farming in Northern Ontario.

From the northernmost District of Kenora all the way down to Muskoka, EFAO will be offering farmer-to-farmer training and mentorship through workshops, field days, kitchen table meetings and advisory consultations and will work to engage more Northern farmers in farmer-led research.

As part of this project, EFAO will also be launching an exciting pilot program in 2020 to support and encourage new and young farmers in Northern Ontario through training and mentorship, as well as farm start-up grants of up to $10,000 per farm.
