Event description


Are you growing seed or want to start but are not sure if a seed crop can give you a financial return? FarmFolk CityFolk, in collaboration with UBC Farm, has been developing enterprise budget spreadsheets for seed production in BC to help answer this question.

This webinar will walk you through seed production budget templates that will help you better understand the economics of integrating seed production into your farm. Sample templates with real BC seed production data will be included so you can begin developing your own seed enterprise budget right away.

The session will also explore options for growing seed under contract. How to get started, what to include in contracts and case studies of how contracts have worked for individual growers and cooperatives will be included. Case studies include Salt Spring Seeds in BC and Ferme Tournesol in Quebec
