YA-crossbonesSOLID-oct18Donors like you are helping to grow the next generation of farmers in Canada!

Help revitalize Canada’s food system- now more than ever, we need new farmers. With people 35 and younger making up just 9% of Canada’s farmers, new farmers need your support.

Your gift will help Young Agrarians grow the next generation of farmers through programs. We work year round to provide farmer-to-farmer knowledge exchange and training opportunities through community building educational and networking events, business mentorships, land access, and on-farm apprenticeships in regenerative agriculture. In 2019, we supported approximately 330 farms through programs, 1000 farmers through educational events, and worked with 75 organizations to collaboratively grow our local food systems across Canada. Your donation is an investment in the renewal and revitalization of ecological agriculture in Canada today.

Your Gift Supports Farmers Like Karel

Karel Beyer, Apprenticeship Program alumni, apprenticed at Redtail Farms in Castor, Alberta:

“As a new farmer, I knew it would be difficult to start my own farm. I wanted to learn to raise cattle regeneratively, and conventional farming programs didn’t appeal to me. The Young Agrarians Apprenticeship Program was a great fit for accessing that knowledge and support from my mentors. Now I know how to build a farm that is more resilient in the face of climate change by diversifying with annuals, perennials, and trees, and how to capture and store water to support life in dryer times. I feel confident being able to raise the animals and take on the production side of farming, and I have an incredible support network of mentors and peers that I can reach out to anytime.”
