This entry was posted in Uncategorized on by .

Ali English, EFAO Executive Director, had the opportunity to present to the Honorable Charles Sousa, Minister of Finance, on February 6th, as part of pre-budget consultations. She spoke about the many environmental, economic and social impacts made by ecological farmers and requested that 2% of the agricultural budget be targeted to ecological growers (who represent roughly 2% of Ontario farms) and the organizations that support them.

In addition to Ali’s in-person address, we also sent a written submission for their review. ¬†You can read the submission here.
