The Canadian Organic Growers, a charity that looks to support organic farmers, has launched a new resource for farmers.
The Organically Canadian Resource Hub was designed to raise an understanding of the benefits of sustainable agriculture and how consumer choices can make a difference.
COG is receiving up to $374,450 in support for the resource hub through Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s AgriCommunication Program.
That's an $8 million initiative over three years to better connect Canadians with local farmers.
COG feels that their resource center is the answer to some Canadians feeling they lack the information needed to make sustainable choices while grocery shopping.
COG’s Organically Canadian Resource Hub includes:
- More than 10 educational tools in diverse formats that focus on learning themes such as food labels, sustainable farming practices, animal welfare, and more.
- Downloadable guides to bring with you when you shop.
- Interactive and family-focused tools that encourage learning for the whole family.
