2023 was a challenging year for Canadian farmers and ranchers. There were droughts, wildfires, floods, an affordability crisis - and according to scientists working with the European Union, 2023 smashed temperature records globally. And yet, someone like Nova Scotia agricultural producer Rachel Lightfoot still finds ways of being optimistic even after her farm got hit by a polar vortex, a dry spring and a very rainy summer all in the same year.
Join host Derek Leahy of Rural Routes to Climate Solutions as he interviews Canadian regenerative farmers and delves into the importance of supporting an agricultural system that not only prioritizes the health of our land and ecosystems, but also ensures the sustainability of our farmers and ranchers.
