Green Hectares was founded by people with a passion for agriculture and a desire to create an environment where anyone with an interest in agriculture and food can thrive and prosper, no matter where they live. A non-profit organization established in 2008, Green Hectares is a leader in bringing sustainability to the agriculture community, and fostering dynamic rural communities.
We take existing and new community-based, entrepreneurship and agricultural programs and make them available to anyone who needs them. Our in-person programs generally happen after an initial conversation while our online efforts are available to people across Canada and around the world through our store. We make it possible for people to connect, collaborate and learn online and within their communities through our variety of accessible programs.
Our board is made up of young people who live in rural, work in agriculture or both. They are all leaders in their own right and come from a wide variety of backgrounds.
All of our programs are designed to work face to face or online. We always try to combine ideas that help you implement the practical and think about the strategic.
