Bring Food Home Conference and New Farmer Training Day
Instead of hosting a 2nd annual New Farmers Conference in 2010, the FarmON Alliance has partnered with FoodNet Ontario, Sustain Ontario, and others to offer a full day of training on March 4th in conjunction with the Bring Food Home conference.
Come hear from keynote speaker Joel Salatin of Polyface Farm as well as many other experienced farmers. Canadian Organic Growers (COG PWW), Ecological Farmers of Ontario (EFAO) and Ignatius Centre, are also planning a CSA mini-school (see Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Mini School).
Staying for the entire three days? FarmON is also hosting a stream of workshops during the conference on March 5th and 6th addressing “Emerging Issues in Farming”.
When: March 4, 2010
Where: Kitchener, Delta Hotel (105 King Street East)
Cost: $95 (late registration fee may be higher)
