$75,000 - March 1, 2007

Only 11% of Canada’s land can support agricultural production, and Ontario boasts 52% of all of Canada’s class 1 farmland.

The Ontario Farmland Trust is an organization devoted to protecting and promoting Ontario farmland by working directly with farmers, rural communities and other interested parties.

Keeping Greenbelt Farmland in Farming involves a major campaign to encourage the donation of agricultural easements throughout the Greenbelt, aiming to establish three easements in year one, seven in year two and ten in year three. The Ontario Farmland Trust aims to impact the policy and planning process, communicating the importance of retaining active farming, local food and enjoying the countryside.
