AgKnow Community

Week of March 17th, 2023

AgKnow Community, a place where producers can focus on their mental health.

“AgKnow is a result of advocacy and request from Alberta’s agriculture community including associations, Agricultural Service Boards, Commodity Boards and Commissions, and individual farmers. Being a farmer with experience both with the stresses of farming and finding help that was affordable and accessible for my family and members of my community, when the opportunity came to do a needs assessment and work on solutions that will have a real benefit I couldn’t turn it down.”

Linda Hunt, Director of the Alberta Farm Mental Health Network.

Whether it’s accessing resources, or pointing a farmer in the right direction, AgKnow is Alberta’s Farm Mental Health Network where farmers can connect directly to resources and services designed specifically for them.

In the community on the AGvisorPRO app, the contributors encourage the members to ask questions (anonymously), talk about how they’re REALLY doing, and engage with each other in meaningful and respectful ways – because we were never meant to do this alone. 

Everyone is welcome in the AgKnow Community.
