Description

AAFC Industry Stakeholder Day

An Information and Networking session is being hosted by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada in Harrington on August 4th featuring guided tours through the farm, presentations from our scientists, and opportunities to discuss your interests and science priorities with AAFC staff and other industry partners from across the region. The event has been planned in cooperation with several key industry associations, based on what they felt their members want to see, and it is meant to connect our partners with the research AAFC is performing. A BBQ lunch will be prepared and hosted by the local 4-H for a small fee of $10, with all proceeds going to the club. Free refreshments will be also available throughout the day.
