Sustainable Farm Families is a highly successful health and wellness initiative that is commonly referred to as the Rural Health Initiative.
In 2014, the Farm Safety Centre in Alberta licensed the program and adapted it for delivery in Alberta. It provides farm families with tools & techniques to effectively manage their health, well-being, and safety.
A variety of activities and peer interactions encourage and empower individuals to assess lifestyle choices.
SFF focuses on the immense importance of individual health, well-being and safety to a successful farm. More than 150 SFF workshops have been delivered to 1,500+ farmers across the province.
