The EFAO is a partner in Living Lab Ontario.  This year their conference will feature three Living Lab Connections.

This EFAO’s 8th annual conference, will be taking place November 29 – December 2, 2021. This year’s theme, Cultivating Common Ground, reflects EFAO’s efforts over the past year to broaden the network of farmers and organizations we work with, and to work to bring equity and diversity to EFAO as an organization, membership, and community. We recognize that real strength comes from working together and bringing different perspectives and skills to the critical work of building resilient ecological farms and communities. The conference will feature three Living Lab Connections.
