“I really found it inspiring to see farmers of all different backgrounds, experiences and goals to be able to come together and work on a vision not only for the future of their own farms but helping to craft what human relationship with agriculture will and should look like in the future. Getting to meet the other Eco-Scholars – Chantal, Emily and Anterra was great (having already known Emma). Being able to share ideas with them and having the opportunity to now connect with them in the near future to see where they have taken their goals is very exciting.”

“I thoroughly appreciated my experience at the Guelph Organic Conference. The fact that I was an Eco-Scholar significantly enhanced the event’s impact for me. As a result, I would urge anyone who is at least interested in organics to apply for the scholarship. Be open to every learning opportunity no matter the topic!”
