uni_of_guelph.jpgSupporting New Farmers in the Greenbelt
$62,000 - June 5, 2006

Through the appraisal of existing programs and the building of partnerships throughout the Greenbelt’s agricultural sector, this project will determine the best ways to train and support new farmers, including recent immigrants and graduates of agricultural programs.

Approximately half of all newcomers to Canada settle in the Golden Horseshoe, bringing with them their skills, energy, cultures and often, farming experience. By exploring opportunities such as the farming of currently leased lands, development of a farm training centre and the creation of new ethnic food markets, this project will inject new life and perspectives into Greenbelt agriculture.
