“There’s some really big questions and problems that we’re facing today – land acquisition, access to capital are huge barriers to farming – but maybe the most important one is that we don’t have enough young farmers.”
– Stuart Oke, Youth President of the National Farmers Union, Canada
Working Title: Farming:The Next Generation
Written and Produced by: Tamer Soliman & Sarah Douglas
Edited by: Rob Tyler
Ask anyone these days and chances are they’ll say they support local food – they’re aware of the importance of shopping at the farmers market, enjoy farm-to-table dining, and appreciate the seasonality of what they eat. But how often do these values translate into actions? And how many people understand the challenges of maintaining a truly sustainable, equitable, and secure food system?
Most of all, how many of us ever acknowledge the people behind the system, our farmers?
- Challenges that young farmers want to remedy through their approach to farming
- Diversity in farming and food accessibility
- Importance of local food, seasonality, and knowing your farmer
