Growers interested in learning more about organic production practices can now register for the Guelph Organic Conference.

Rather than the usual four-day live event, the 2021 Guelph Organic Conference consists of five online seminars across five days. These free seminars will take place at 1 p.m. EST on Jan. 26-30 through Zoom. Topics include organic certification, organic vegetable seeds and crop production, and handling barriers to transitioning to organic production.

The Conference has asked several organic groups to co-organize the event – COTA/Canada Organic Trade Association, OCO/Organic Council of Ontario, COG/Canadian Organic Growers, EFAO/Ecological Farmers Association of Ontario + High Mowing Seeds, then finally Gary Zimmer along with SureSource Commodities/organic grain trader for the Saturday cropping program, assisted by OCO.
