Organic farming is an ecologically balanced, integrated way of farming.
It also has a legal definition under the USDA National Organic Program
(NOP). Central to certification is the organic systems plan the farmer
creates. Many farmers find that creating the record keeping systems
required for an organic systems plan helps them be better farm
managers. In this interactive workshop, instructor Larry Dyer will
explain how the USDA NOP works, explain the requirements for
transitioning to organic. Participants will leave the workshop with a
draft organic systems plan for their farm.
$25 per person, or $30 for two from the same farm
