Bauta Family Initiative

Ontario is home to regional and national organizations doing remarkable work on ecological farming and food security, as well as a large number of ecological farmers, many of whom are engaged in seed saving or commercial seed production.

The Bauta Family Initiative on Canadian Seed Security (The BFICSS) in Ontario is focused on advancing on-farm seed production work by facilitating opportunities for farmers to participate in on-farm research such as variety trialing and plant breeding, as well as training and education that offers valuable knowledge exchange with other growers in the region and beyond. EFAO is the host organization for The BFICSS in Ontario.


The part-time Program Coordinator for The BFICSS in Ontario is Rebecca Ivanoff,
