EFAO receives Organic Farming Research Foundation grant to support three farmer-led breeding projects
EFAO has received funding from the Organic Farming Research Foundation to support three ongoing farmer-led breeding projects on locally adapted vegetables.
Farmer-researchers Paul DeJong, Ken Laing and Tony McQuail published their findings in the Canadian Journal of Soil Science.
EFAO member-farmers Val Steinmann and Brent Preston, along with EFAO’s Research Director, Sarah Hargreaves, joined host Cameron Ogilvie on the new podcast “Talk Dirty to Me”.
We are excited to announce that EFAO’s Farmer-Led Research Program is the first recipient of the inaugural Excellence in Agriculture Award.
