Horton Ridge Malt & Grain Co.
Committed to learning more and contributing to the future of organic agriculture in Nova Scotia?
The NS Organic Forum is a great chance to gather and get inspired by your organic peers, while also providing guidance to the ACORN team as they set goals for 2018-19.
This year will feature a presentation of ACORN's Organic Consumer Market Research results and a discussion of how to act on recommendations, as well as plenty of opportunity to lend your voice to how we move forward with advancing organics and farming in Nova Scotia. See the full agenda below.
We are thrilled to be hosted by Al Stewart (2017 Gerrit Loo Award winner!) at Horton Ridge Malt & Grain Co. Al's team will have a lunch of soup (friendly to all diets) and grilled cheese (featuring Knoydart Farm cheese and bread made by Just Us! from Horton Ridge's own wheat malt!) available for $10. Please RSVP by registering for the event by February 16th if you would like to have lunch. All payment will be at the door.
Everyone is welcome!
