Every second of every day, 20 m2 of land is submerged under a pile of concrete, before then making way for new construction projects.
One major consequence of this? The price of land has skyrocketed in recent years!
Indeed, it has increased by almost 40% in the last ten years alone, forcing young people with agricultural ambitions to take out lifelong loans and become mired in significant debt in a bid to purchase their plot.
To counter this rapid rise in cost, Terre de Liens has decided to embark on a mission. That of preserving agricultural land from new construction projects in order to make way for new farms instead!
To this end, Terre de Liens buys up farmland and prevents agricultural plots from being rezoned and swallowed up, thus allowing young farmers to set up shop in a manner that is respectful to both the local ecosystem and animal welfare. Thanks to their efforts, no less than 260 farmers have been able to launch their own locally produced, organic and community-based agricultural endeavours.
For all their efforts, we wanted to say a big thanks to the team at Terre de Liens for supporting an agricultural and dietary model that is at once good for the environment, biodiversity and people’s health!
