FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Announcing the First Canadian Summit on Climate Action in Food Systems

Farmers, food companies, consumers, tech and agronomy experts gather in Kelowna, bC to support advancement in regenerative organic agriculture

Agriculture needs to change. We all know that farming and food systems have played a role in climate change — but they can be the solution, too. Reshaping and modernizing food production, financial models, and distribution systems offers the potential for regenerative and organic agriculture to become a powerful positive influence on the natural environment. The goal of Sustainable Grain is to support innovative solutions to this end.

We are pleased to launch the inaugural Canadian Summit on Climate Action in Food Systems, where farmers, food companies, and agronomy experts will gather in Kelowna, BC to support advancement in regenerative organic agriculture.

“With this Summit, we are hosting a professional, intellectual and supportive community of stakeholders to explore the trends in global agriculture that threaten some models of farming and food distribution,” said Brenda Tjaden, conference host and Founder of Sustainable Grain. “Attendees of the Summit will leave energized, with new knowledge on how to immediately improve the food system’s relationship with the natural environment.”

The concept isn’t new. The Summit will showcase innovative farmers from across Canada who are already proving out the results in their fields and in the food they grow. Through agroecology, regenerative organic agriculture is helping farms sequester carbon in soils, restore diversity and profitability, and produce healthier and more flavourful food ingredients.

The network of presenters includes thought leaders from across Canada and global agriculture. Their expertise will support policymakers, innovators, entrepreneurs, and ultimately farmland owners to create and support new sustainable and regenerative food production options.
