As of November 9th, the Guelph Organic Conference Committee is actively organizing 5 online seminars, to run January 26, 27, 28, 29 & 30. These seminars are being developed cooperatively with several of the active organic groups in Ontario. Workshops will focus on organic crop production & marketing: product development & launching, expanding organic acreage, certifying non-food products and organic seed production. There will be a special themed speaker on Saturday the 30th – Gary Zimmer of Wisconsin, giving a lively organic cropping program.
The Conference Committee hopeful to run an interesting & motivating Eco-Scholar Program, through the end of January during the virtual conference. We will be offering students within Canada the chance to express their personal motivation for being in the organic business. Generous cash prizes will be offered.
All workshop proposals received last March will be kept on file, awaiting news of an in-person event to run in January, 2022.
Thank you for your patience as we formulated this plan to “keep the 2021 Conference alive.”
