This is the yearly event where organic farmers (and processors, retailers, chefs, customers) get together and plan how we can all collaborate to benefit organic farms in Nova Scotia.
This is your chance to meet with other NS organic farmers before the craziness of the warm growing season begins and talk about the big picture of what’s going on in our province. Where we can offer each other support and advice and talk about the things that keep us up at night. And where we can share a good potluck meal together. Please bring a dish to share, your own serving tools and dishes.
If it ends up being a snow day, the date will be moved to Jan.19th.
