Ontario Agriculture

The network for agriculture in Ontario, Canada

Hello!

I am in the Assaulted Women and Children’s Counsellor/Advocacy program at George Brown College. I am currently working on a project with a group that looks at the impacts of globalization and the farming industry on women. In collaboration with rural women, we are to come up with a strategic initiative.

 

Our aim is to reach out to women farmers in rural areas and people that work with women farmers in rural areas, so that we may come up with a more informed initiative.  As women who work on the farm, I was hoping people would have some time to answer a few questions.

If you are available to answer a few questions on your experiences and things you'd like to see change, please reply here or send me an email directly at amorg70@gmail.com. I would be appreciative of any information you could provide. Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

 

Anna Morgan

 

Focus of our project includes:

  • Unpaid work

  • Access to appropriate training in crop production
  • Financial management, mechanic, machinery operation
  • Education and linkage to the global context
  • Link with the worldwide women’s movement in seeking equality
