Program Title: Fit to Eat Season 2 Episode 6
Description: You've seen the idyllic images - of strong farmers, looking over their productive fields and healthy stock, lost in thought, with a piece of straw in their mouth and accomplishment overflowing in their hearts. And these images are sometimes accurate, indeed. But sometimes farming can be stressful, lonely, challenging, unprofitable, and more. This week on "Fit to Eat" I talk with Dr. Andria Jones-Bitton about farmer mental health and wellness in Canada - and how individuals and communities and sectors can offer assistance to those who are in need of support. Join us for a conversation in her office at the University of Guelph.
