This is the gist of the event:

Planning Your Farm’s Organic Seed Productions

The ABC’s of Crop Planning, Crop Economics and CFIA Regulations

Have you ever thought about adding a couple seed crops to your organic farm? There is a lack of good quality organic seed available from local producers in Eastern Canada. This two-day workshop will address some of the regulations and economics of growing organic seed on a market scale.  It will also provide a forum for seed growers and seed companies to further build the growing Eastern Canadian organic seed network.

This weekend targets seed people of all levels of experience.  During this weekend participants who are new to seed production will make a seed production plan to grow one seed crop this summer.

Cost: 75$ for workshop (includes lunch on both days).
