Increasing Organic Production
$150,000 - June 25, 2007

Since 2005, organic farming and production in Ontario have grown by 1.6% and 8% respectively, In fact, Ontario houses 497 certified organic farmers, which is close to 14% of Canada’s organic farmers.

The Ecological Farmers Association of Ontario (EFAO) is an organization established in 1979 to promote the advancement and understanding of ecological agricultural methods.

The EFAO, recognizing an opportunity to enhance farmers’ profits while strengthening their commitment to the land through sustainable organic practice, ushers in an era of farmer-to-farmer training and support. This project encourages farmers in the Greenbelt to benefit from market trends, and focuses on current courses, workshops, farm tours, and a structured mentorship program, which allows established farmers to share their knowledge with newly interested organic farmers.
