On 10 May 2018 Alberta Farmer Express reported:
Being Alberta's most northerly rural municipality isn't Mackenzie County's only claim to fame. 'Right now, Mackenzie County has the highest number of organic farmers,' said Jacob Marfo, manager and research director of the Mackenzie Applied Research Association, (MARA). And the region may soon have more. MARA and Organic Alberta, with support from the county and a regional development initiative, have partnered on a two-year, $330,000 program that will help farmers diversify into organic production, and assist those who are already involved in organics.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of environment, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
. . . The first workshop in the program, held last month, attracted 67 attendees. Some are already farming organically, others transitioning, and some are conventional farmers still considering a move to organic.
'There are some new guys from the oilfields who are coming, and some of them have moved into farming,' said Marfo. 'Conventional farmers can also learn from the organic farmers in terms of minimum input use. They're starting to do lots of soil tests so they can reduce their use or inputs.'
