It may seem quiet on the blog, but ACORN is in full swing.
This week, we just completed our workshop series on soil with Fred Magdoff. Workshops were held across the Maritimes and more than 100 participated! Feedback was terrific and Fred drew accolades. Notes and video from the workshop will be available shortly.
We’ve also just posted videos from our 2007 organic conference on our youtube channel. These deal with going organic, record-keeping, Community Supported Agriculture and more. To view them, and see our other conference and workshop notes, visit http://acornorganic.org/workshopnotes.html.
The 2009 conference is really coming along too. We’ve got the program nearly completed and the trade show is already a third full! Features of the conference are an advanced half-day workshop on CSAs (farm box program), special three-part workshop on “going organic”, and another three-part workshop on season extension. Our theme is related to environment and health, so there will be two days of workshops that relate just to this!
We’ve got more up our sleeve too!
In the New Year, we’ll have workshops on setting up farm apprenticeship programs, growing organic berries, and improving post-harvest handling and storage.
Stay in touch and don’t miss a thing.
