Media Advisory - Launch of the First-Ever ALUS Program in Québec

SAINT-HYACINTHE, QC, Aug. 4, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Active in six provinces, the ALUS program helps farmers and ranchers produce ecosystem services, such as clean air, clean water and wildlife habitat, on their land, for the benefit of everyone. To date, ALUS Canada has invested nearly $2.8M in 19 farm communities, where participants have established nearly 18,200 acres.
