Ag Law in the Field


Sep 24, 2020

This topic is a little different than our normal agricultural law focus.  The topic of mental health is one that is extremely important to me.  Agriculture and rural America has to do a better job of talking about mental health challenges and working to make positive changes.  Our lives literally depend on it.

Today, I am thrilled to visit with Canadian farmer, Lesley Kelly.  Lesley is the co-founder of the Do More Agriculture Foundation, a non-profit with the goal of being "champions for the mental wellbeing of all Canadian producers" and a goal of "changing the culture of Agriculture to one where all producers are encouraged, supported and empowered to take care of their mental wellbeing."
