Please join Canadian Organic Growers (COG) at one of their upcoming farmer focus groups to tell them what it takes to transition to organic production!

COG has spent the last several months working with farmers like you to identify the main costs and barriers involved in transitioning to organic agriculture. Now it’s time to hear form you to see if they got it right. Please join them at an upcoming Focus Group and tell them YOUR STORY!

They want to hear it all – the good, the bad and the ugly.

You should attend their focus group if you are a producer and:

  • are interested in transitioning to organic;
  • started to transition but stopped;
  • have completed transition successfully
  • have been organic from the start, or;
  • are a producer that wants to tell us how we can support transition.

Come out to one of our Farmer Focus Groups, taking place across Canada! Note: They’ve just recently wrapped one up in Quebec and it was a big success!
