Release Date: June 26, 2022

In this fourth episode,

we explore the issues of accessing land that are facing young farmers today. We’re thrilled to hear from Hannah Hunter and Natalie Childs of Agricola Cooperative Farm/Ferme Agricola about their journey accessing land and the principles upon which they run their operation today. Don’t miss this conversation about collaboration, worker’s cooperatives, and the foundational importance of communication and relationship building in strengthening a farm business.

Who Will Feed Us Host: Aliyah Fraser

Aliyah Fraser — Co-Host

Aliyah is a Kitchener-based farmer who owns and operates a quarter acre market garden called Lucky Bug Farm. The farm is located within the Haldimand Tract and is on the traditional territory of the Mississauga, Anishnabeg, Attiwonderonk (neutral) and Haudenoshaunee peoples. She imagines a food system where more people have access to ecologically grown food, where there is less waste and where there's a better understanding of the labour it takes to get food from the farm to the table. Aliyah also has an undergraduate degree in Environmental Studies in Urban planning from the University of Waterloo. She believes that food and housing are human rights. She lives in Kitchener, Ontario with her partner Thomas and cat Frankie.
