Ecological Farmers Association of Ontario!

Hello everyone! This blog post is about the wonderful regenerative agricultural practices that the Ecological Farmers Association of Ontario (EFAO) is working to promote. Regenerative agriculture focuses on restoring, regenerating, and improving ecosystems as they relate to the soil and land used for agricultural production. This includes techniques such as composting, cover cropping, no-till farming, crop rotation, rotational grazing and more. These practices help increase soil health and fertility while reducing water usage and runoff into rivers or waterways. Worm Wrangler is proud to be a member of EFAO because we share their commitment to nature-based solutions for sustainable land stewardship and food production. We believe in regenerative agriculture’s potential to create a healthier environment for both people and our planet.

What is the Ecological Farmers Association of Ontario?

The EFAO has been leading the charge in promoting these regenerative agriculture practices across Ontario since 1980. They are a grassroots nonprofit organization that works hard to expand sustainability practices among farmers in Ontario through advocacy, research, education and networking. They provide resources and support for these farmers, promote ecological and organic farming practices, and educate their members and the public. Their mission is to facilitate healthy, sustainable food production in Ontario by supporting new and experienced ecological farmers and their participation in vibrant local food systems.

What does the EFAO stand for?

The Ecological Farmers Association of Ontario stands for ecological and organic farming practices, which means farming in a way that is sustainable, preserves the environment, and does not rely on synthetic inputs such as pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. They believe regenerative farming is better for the environment, better for the health of consumers, and provides a high level of quality and taste in the food produced.
