Guelph Organic Program Gets 1 Year Reprieve

This just in from the Food Secure Canada list-serve (a great digest for keeping up to date on food issues, both in Canada and internationally):

“the Guelph University Senate voted at their meeting last night to give the organic program a 1 year reprieve “in which to boost enrollment, groom new teachers, and find some industry support for sessionals”. The vote was narrow, 69 to 60 … there were “some really outstanding and impassioned youngsters speaking on our behalf” which must have made a difference!”

This is really good news, although I have to wonder if one year is going to be enough to increase enrollment sufficiently for the university to agree to keep the program.  But perhaps it will give the program’s proponents time to rally more support in general.  I expect the first plan to cut it must have really caught them off guard.  Should I find any information on how to support this initiative, I’ll be sure to share it here!
