Small Town Support
We support small towns. Our head office is located in the small community of Westlock, Alberta. Many small communities all over the world are struggling as we experience centralization. People are migrating to large centres causing small towns to shrink and disappear. As cities experience rapid grow their inhabitants face many challenges such as: lack of affordable housing, inadequate infrastructure, or pollution. By providing local jobs we are offering employment opportunities for people to stay in small towns. Arthur Morgan was right when he wrote “the community really is the seed bed of society” and we believe we are doing our part in supporting the Canadian economy and small towns.
By supporting organic farmers, we are reducing our environmental footprint and supporting sustainable food production. Organic food production relies on organic fertilizers which reduce nutrient run off preventing eutrophication of lakes and streams.
Organic agriculture supports sustainable agriculture by focusing on the health of the soil. Organic practices keep the soil microbes fed and happy and do not rely on synthetic chemicals. Organic fertilizers are better held in the soil and will not leach into water systems this prevents pollution of our rivers and streams. Healthy soils create healthy food to fuel healthy bodies.
What Does Organic Mean?
Organic farming means farmers grow food under a specific set of standards that are regulated by the country of origin. These standards outline how food is produced. Organic foods are grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, or genetically modified seeds. Pesticides are chemicals that can be used to control weeds (herbicides), bugs (insecticides), or disease of crops (fungicides). Organic farmers cannot use synthetic fertilizers, which are nutrients manufactured from minerals, gases, or waste products. However organic farmers can use organic fertilizers such as compost or mined phosphate rock. All organic farmers must go through a certification process and have audits to confirm their practices align with organic standards.
