The EFAO is a founding member of Farmers for Climate Solutions, a coalition of Canadian farm organizations that advocates for better climate politics in agriculture. In the year and a half since its inception, FCS has grown to include 23 member organizations that together represent over 20,000 farmers and ranchers, and has achieved major changes in Canadian agricultural policy. Meet four farmers who have been deeply involved in the coalition, and hear how farmers from diverse backgrounds can come together to influence governments and spread climate-friendly practices across the country.
