SFN’s 36th Annual Banquet

April 1, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 10:00 pm


Spring is just around the corner; you know what that means, our annual Banquet is fast approaching. Our special Guest Speaker will be ALUS Senior Hub Manager, Great Lakes, Alyssa Cousineau.

Alyssa liaises with our community coordinators and serves as a management resource for local ALUS projects around the Great Lakes. Working with ALUS since 2016, Alyssa started as the ALUS Elgin Program Coordinator, moving into the role of Eastern Hub Manager in 2020 and Great Lakes Senior Hub Manager in 2022. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a Masters in Environment and Sustainability. Alyssa is based in Tillsonburg, Ontario.

Her topic, ALUS 101: Beyond Conservation to Production, will introduce us to ALUS (Alternative Land Use Services) a charitable organization with an innovative community-developed and farmer-delivered program that produces, enhances and maintains ecosystem services on agricultural lands. Alyssa will talk about how the ALUS program works and the benefit from the production of environmental outcomes to usual crops of food, fibres and fuels.
