Supporting Farmer Livelihoods: Research Partnerships for Action

Please join us on January 22nd for the second webinar in the Good Food Solutions by FLEdGE series, which highlights sustainable food system research from across the “Food: Locally Embedded, Globally Engaged” and Canadian Association for Food Studies networks, and is proudly co-sponsored by Feeding the City: Pandemic & Beyond.

Registration required:

In this webinar, "Supporting Farmer Livelihoods: Research Partnerships for Action," sustainable food system practitioners, experts, and researchers will explore the possibilities of policy dialogues, digital retail spaces, and ecological production for farmers in Canada. Panelists will present their research findings and recommendations from three projects including: (1) lessons learned from a community partnership on the future of farming in Hastings County in Eastern Ontario, (2) data on how digital technologies are changing the way that farmers engage in markets across the country, and (3) insights collected at a field school on the future of agroecology in Canada. Panelists will discuss the process of community-research partnerships, offer policy recommendations relevant to small-scale farmers, and explore how their work is scalable and/or replicable in other contexts. Discussant Bess Legault from the National Farmers Union will provide insights on how research can support farmer livelihoods in Canada.  

This webinar will be in English with simultaneous French interpretation available.
