The Grey Bruce Centre for Agroecology is a group of farmer researchers working on policies and on-farm production research to benefit ecological farmers. Our members have academic degrees and professional experience, but most of us rely on farming as a relevant share of our annual income. With our combination of practice and theory, we see ourselves as a bridge between policy, research and practice. As a group, we have a wide range of knowledge, experience and skill sets that make us uniquely suited to understanding the strengths, needs and challenges of diversified farms. Our goal is to further the success of such farmers through our work with the public sector (policies, best practices, systems analysis) and all participants in the food system (production, distribution, advocacy, education).
