New Regenerative Agriculture Awareness Campaign Launches
Regeneration Canada (RC) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting soil regeneration in order to mitigate climate change, restore biodiversity, improve farmers’ livelihood, and support a healthy food system. In efforts to continue building awareness, educating the public, and fostering supportive relationships, RC is launching the Canada-wide campaign “Stories of Regeneration.”
Many Canadian farmers and ranchers are implementing regenerative practices that allow them to create resiliency in their farms and communities. Regenerative agriculture aims to increase agricultural productivity, enhance the nutritional quality of foods and contribute to Canada’s efforts for climate change mitigation and adaptation.
The “Stories of Regeneration” campaign brings together ecosystems, producers, chefs and consumers to dig into new solutions to tackle the climate crisis and ensure healthy food systems for all. The campaign aims to enhance public awareness around regenerative agriculture practices and how farmers contribute to combating climate change and food systems issues. Regeneration Canada is receiving up to $344,882 through the AgriCommunication Program, delivered by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, to promote stories of producers across Canada who are proud of their contributions to regenerative agriculture.
“In the face of climate change, our farmers are taking action to ensure their production processes are increasingly more sustainable. By showcasing the agriculture sector’s leadership in soil regeneration to help mitigate climate change, organizations like Regeneration Canada are helping to build public trust in Canada’s food system.”
— The Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food
The Regeneration Canada team will visit farmers across the country—listening to diverse voices, learning from changing landscapes, exploring different practices and connecting with local communities. The initiative will be divided into two phases, the first includes eight farm events for in-person connections. The second phase involves digital elements, including video stories, webinars, podcast interviews and a strong social media outreach for long-lasting interactions.
