About the event
As natural stewards, farmers are well positioned to provide ecological services to their communities. Payment for these ecological services is not a new idea, but it is relatively new to the region. Kate Powell coordinates the ALUS Peterborough Program and will provide an overview of where we are now, what we’re looking ahead to and how farmers and the community can get involved. Kate is a naturalist in the Nogojiwanong/Peterborough area, who grew up exploring the local flora and fauna. She is a Fleming and Trent grad and has since worked with several local ENGO's. Kate is also a volunteer member of the Peterborough County Stewardship Board, and a local artist involved in the "Love for the Boro" initiative.
