Event description

Description

Join the Organic Council of Ontario for a webinar on small-scale solutions in organic agriculture! This is the second webinar in our #YourStandardsYourSay webinar series.

Our first webinar outlined the Canadian Organic Standards' review process and the steps to submitting a modification proposal. Now, we are taking a closer look at some of the issues that are up for debate this review cycle, many of which have already had proposals put forth relating to them. First, we will look at the problems faced by small-scale organic farmers. What does small-scale organic farming look like, and how do the Canadian Organic Standards help (or harm) small-scale organic farmers? OCO's Executive Director Carolyn Young will present the results of our small-scale survey with a particular focus on Ontario, and a number of small-scale experts.
