The first annual Living Soils Symposium Montréal has been designed to create a multidisciplinary interaction facilitating cross-pollination between different schools of thought, fields of study, and areas of work. Leaders from all walks of life will be there: food producers, researchers, agronomists, entrepreneurs, and policy makers.

Regenerative Organic Certification builds upon the near 100-year legacy of organic movement visionaries like J. I.

It is essential to farm in a way that enriches rather than degrades the soil, and values animals and workers.
