What do you think is needed for a sustainable future for farming in Ontario?

Ontario farmers and agri-business partners  - we’re looking for your insights and ideas.

Attend one or both days of “Cultivating a Sustainable Future” hosted by Farm & Food Care to hear some innovative and challenging speakers.  This is your opportunity to provide some valuable input into future directions for  Farm & Food Care’s Animal Care and Environment Councils on what issues and opportunities you think should be priorities for agriculture in Ontario.

Day Two: February 13 Focus on Environment

Environmental Stewardship, a shared responsibility –  from your farm to ‘Big Food’
