ACORN and PEI COPC would like to invite you to join us for the second annual provincial organic forum. The Forum is an opportunity to gather the organic and farming community; to receive and provide updates on the past year and future plans; and to offer input to ACORN & PEI COPC on our 2018-19 activities.

This event is free and open to everyone - all we ask is that everyone bring a contribution for our potluck lunch. There is a kitchen with fridge and stove on-site.
