UPCOMING EVENTS

March 5, 2020 - March 6, 2020

Prairie Organics: Think Whole Farm 2020 will be held at the Keystone Centre in Brandon, Manitoba on March 5 & 6 2020.

This event will bring together the science and practice of organic farming. Conference delegates will learn about building soil fertility, managing weeds, the latest cultivation and seeding equipment along with other cross cutting issues such as building biodiversity and responding to a changing climate from leading researchers and producers. A 26,000 square foot trade show will be free and open to the public. The trade show will provide one-stop shopping for producers seeking organic certification services, input and equipment providers and associated environmental industries.

Producers can build their markets by participating in one-on-one business meetings with buyers and networking sessions throughout the event. This year, we are introducing a new scientific poster session. This is an opportunity for scientists working on projects relevant to organic production in the Prairie/Great Plains region to present results to producers and researchers working in the region.

We hope to see you there! For more information visit our website at https://www.prairieorganics.org/
