Learning Material

Looking to complete your educational credit for your On-Farm Climate Action Fund project? We have several options available! View the list below to see what is available for your Beneficial Management Practice (BMP). Select one, review the resource and complete the corresponding quiz.

Please note: Complete one educational credit for each BMP category where you have an approved project. For example you are approved for a fencing project and adding legumes to a pasture – these are both rotational grazing projects, therefore choose one educational credit from that category.   You are also approved for a nutrient management plan – this is a nitrogen management project, therefore also choose one educational credit from that category.

If you have any questions, please contact us at programs@perennia.ca.
