Ontario Woodlot Association Living Labs Farmer Survey
This questionnaire should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.
This questionnaire allows us to include your farm in our upcoming Round 2 proposal to Agriculture and Agrifood Canada's Agricultural Climate Solutions Living Labs program. The Ontario Woodlot Association was one of two organizations that were successful with the Round 1 Grant Application in Ontario ($100K) which has given us the capacity to embark on a more detailed Round 2 Application.
The objective of this Living Labs program is to help Canada to meet 2030 and 2050 targets in the federal Climate plan through co-development and adoption of beneficial management practices (BMPs) within the agricultural sector that:
- Sequester carbon and mitigate GHG
- Provide social, economic and environmental co-benefits
From our initial farmer-ideation sessions, we have narrowed down the categories of beneficial management categories to the following:
- Forest Management (ie. Chestnut Recovery)
- Annual and Perennial Cropping (ie. Alley Cropping)
- Grazing Management (ie. Silvopasture)
Providing us with the details below will allow us to determine the beneficial management practices that are the most important to you so we can co-develop research trials that help to answer questions and reduce barriers to adoption of those practices.
If you have not already sent in your Letter of Support (was due October 15th) please update Erica on the status of your Letter.
Please complete this survey before November 20th. The questions in this survey have been informed by our several Farmer-Centered Ideation Sessions lead by Erica and Olyvia, and our farm field visits lead by our Technical Coordinator Elliot. If you have not yet had a chance to attend an ideation session or welcome a field visit but want to, please note this in the application below so we can set more up. If you have not had the chance, please see the Informational Powerpoint by Dr. Thevasthan.
