Join us as we showcase mini-videos created by local Alberta farmers on the subjects of food, family, community, agriculture as a livelihood and stewardship. These digital stories also include a voice from consumers who support raising and growing food in a sustainable way. The challenge of agriculture is to produce food profitably while maintaining healthy landscapes. Fortunately, many producers, including our REAL Beef producers, have met the test of sustainable food production. The next challenge is to create a path to increased prosperity by establishing connections and relationships between Alberta producers and consumers. Join us to begin and/or continue the dialogue around these issues and solutions!
