Why Run for Biodiversity?


Biodiversity is all about food and farmers. It is the earth’s life-support system and nature’s brilliant insurance policy against disaster. If something fails, biodiversity means there a back-up plan. Much is at stake for us all, and in a real sense, USC Canada is helping farmers plant the seeds of our very survival.

Thanks for making a difference!

Thanks to your generous support, USC Canada is able to help farmers grow more food for their families, in ways that our kind to the environment and nurture biodiversity.

We’re called USC Canada because we started out way back in 1945 as the Unitarian Service Committee, founded by the energetic and indefatigable Dr. Lotta Hitschmanova. We’re still planting the seeds that Lotta sowed. Find out more about our founder, Dr. Lotta Hitschmanova.
