Donors 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 Robin
Robin Sturley, Merville Organics Farmers’ Cooperative, Merville, B.C.
“In the beginning, as a brand new farmer, I didn’t have a network of people to reach out to. Young Agrarians helped me discover the wider community of small-scale farmers on Vancouver Island. Through YA’s farm tours, workshops and mixers, I was able to connect to moral support (whew, I wasn’t alone!) and meet my current farm business partners. Later I was able to participate in the Young Agrarians Business Mentorship program and get the training I need to become financially viable. Today I’m a part of a thriving farmers’ co-operative and have found my niche within the sector. Thanks, YA, for being part of this journey.”
