Turning ideas into action

Through cost-share funding opportunities with Growing Forward 2, farmers are tackling projects to help grow their profits, expand their markets and manage risks. To share in their on-farm success, the Ontario Soil and Crop Improvement Association is launching a series of videos of how producers are benefiting under the program.  The first two of those videos – Hugh Simpson and Truly Green Farms, are now available

To see how Hugh Simpson, a beekeeper near Collingwood, Ontario, tapped into Growing Forward 2 funding to build a refrigerated storage room that keeps his equipment safe from the wax moth, or how Truly Green Farms tapped into Growing Forward 2 funding to stop potential disease and foreign pathogens at its front door, visit www.ontariosoilcrop.org/oscia-programs/growing-forward-2/sharing-on-farm-success/ 

We will be sharing the videos over the next few weeks on OSCIA’s social media accounts and website, and encourage others to share!

Growing Forward 2 is a five-year federal-provincial-territorial initiative, which encourages innovation, competitiveness and market development in Canada’s agri-food and agri-products sector. Growing Forward 2 cost-share funding is administered to producers by the Ontario Soil & Crop Improvement Association.
