Halton Region – Agricultural Sustainability for the Future from Sustain Ontario on Vimeo.

In the words of Halton farmer Peter Lambrick,“With a growing population, agriculture will become more important, not less.” Protecting and sustaining farmland through environmental stewardship and farm succession planning will be key to ensuring that Halton’s farmlands stay in production for generations to come. Issues such as diversifying for future resilience continue to be addressed to strengthen the region’s agricultural sustainability. We see many devoted, hard-working growers and farmers, who feel they are surrounded by a supportive community that cares about the local food movement. Farmers discuss sustainable practices and methods, and ways to strengthen the links between producers, consumers and land owners using social media and other networking and awareness-building tools.
