Shuswap Climate Action's Conversation with Eli Pivnick on Regenerative Agriculture

Conversation with Eli Pivnick

There has been a lot of talk about “regenerative” farming as a means to reduce GHG emissions. As a sector, the food system as a whole is responsible for anywhere from 10-18% (or more) of global GHG emissions with the higher estimate accounting for deforestation associated with land clearing and land use for crops and livestock. Julia Beatty of SCAS spoke with Eli Pivnick, a former research scientist with Agriculture Canada, about exactly how it works and what the benefits are with respect to reducing the impacts on our climate.

We have refreshed our

Heat Pump Group Purchase Rebate Code!

The new code is:

 GPR0168-EXP19/01/2023-CBC

(valid from October 20, 2022 to January 19, 2023)

Maximize Your CleanBC Heat Pump Rebates!

Make sure you add this code when you apply for

your heat pump rebates from CleanBC!

Our GPR could add $100 to as much as $500 for homeowners switching from an oil, natural gas, or propane heating system to an eligible air source heat pump. The more homes that register and apply using the same Group Code, the higher the rebate for each participant, so share this page with your friends!

Did You Miss Our Webinar on Heat Pumps?

Effective April 1, 2022, BC eliminated the PST on the purchase of heat pumps!
