COG Focus Group: Understanding the Risks of Transitioning to Organic

  • November 27, 2017 12:30-2:30pm
  • Best Western Glengarry, Truro, NS

Canadian Organic Growers has spent the last few months working with researchers to identify the main risks involved in transitioning to organic production. Now it’s time to validate our findings – so we need to hear your story!

If you are interested in transitioning to organic, started to transition but stopped, have completed transition successfully, have been organic from the start, or want to tell us how we can support transition, then please join us at our producer focus group to discuss transition! Outcomes of this work will benefit organic and transitioning producers across the country. Thank you for being part of the solution! To save your spot at the table– RSVP to rachael@cog.ca. This focus group takes place during the ACORN Conference, but you do not have to be registered to participate in this focus group.
