The Future of Farming
Monday, August 3rd,7:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Oscar Peterson Concert Hall, 7141 Sherbrooke St Ouest
Joel Salatin (Polyface Farm), Jean-Martin Fortier (The Market Gardener) and Maxime Laplante (Peasant Union) we will explore the potential of small-scale farming to create farms that are both profitable and ethical.
According to the United Nations, small-scale organic agriculture is the future’s way of feeding the world. In Quebec and around the world, farmers innovate and revolutionise our agricultural practices.
Come and discover examples of profitable farms who nourish their communities while regenerating ecosystems
