Certification for small-scale organic farms
Two certification models are proposed – Please comment! As part of the review of the Canadian Organic Standards, the Organic Federation of Canada struck a working group to look at the issues of Small Scale Organic Certification.
A number of options were considered. After reviewing the concerns and hopes of the certified and not-certified organic farmers, the working group proposes two models: a self-declaration organic pledge and a peer review certification process. These two proposals would work for organic farmers who direct market their products.
Are you a professional arborist looking for some winter Costa Rican sunshine? Have you ever dreamed of working up in a jungle canopy? Are you hard working and a self starter with experience in removing tricky trees in and around multiple buildings and orchard spaces?
Rancho Mastatal is an environmental learning and sustainable living center, rural sanctuary and lodge located in and on the edge of the last remaining virgin rainforest of Costa Rica's beautiful Puriscal County. The Ranch team has a plethora of skills but with our limited time we are currently unable to do it all. We are falling behind on our tree work and need a boost to help us catch back up in this area.
We are looking for an experienced person or people (ideally 2 people who can work together) to join our team for 4 weeks (or more!!!!!) this winter to help us remove some potentially dangerous trees in and around our structures.
