Young Agrarians is a network for new and young ecological and organic farmers. Since they started January 2012, the network has grown across Canada from coast to coast through farmers organizing events like mixers, farm tours, potlucks, apprentice meet-ups, etc.
Including rural and urban farmers, market gardeners, seed savers, food activists, bee keepers, community gardeners, food/farmer organizations and more- the Young Agrarians work with seed, plant and animal and choose with their hands to steward land and soil.
They recognize Indigenous title to all lands in Canada, and believe it is everyone’s responsibility to care for and respect the land that we all live on and depend upon for water, food and shelter. In a time of worsening climate change, everyone must all do their part to nurture resilient food systems (local, ecological and equitably produced) choosing with our dollars, values and hands to consume and produce foods that are healthy for us and future generations.
