Canadian farming has an impressive story to tell and the great food we produce is only half of it. The Real Dirt on Farming Project will help you tell your own agriculture story, address consumer concerns, answer questions and debunk myths about food and farming.
In this project, you’ll learn:
- Why it’s important to speak up and promote agriculture and how to do so articulately
- Key facts and figures about the Ontario livestock and poultry industries
- The basics of organic farming, GMOs and the use of pesticides
- How to tell your story with the use of video and social media
