2017: Sustainable Farming

2017: Sustainable Farming

Grade 9 to Grade 12

Farmers not only play a critical role in providing us with food, but also act as stewards of the landscape and contribute to conservation efforts to protect and enhance our natural ecosystems. They play a vital role in maintaining and improving soil health, water and air quality, providing increased wildlife and pollinator habitat, sequestration of carbon, and conserving water and energy.

Voluntary efforts, provincial and federal government incentives, as well as information to farmers can improve the sustainability of their practices. This year’s Envirothon Current Issue Study Guide will focus on best management practices and programs farmers use to balance the environment with food production.
