FARMERS COMING TOGETHER TO LEARN, SHARE KNOWLEDGE, AND BUILD NETWORKS
Over the summer of 2018, Organic Alberta took a new direction and introduced the idea of regional Farm Clubs! A Farm Club is an opportunity for farmers to come together to discuss their challenges and collaborate on solutions with the aim of improving farming practices through self-directed learning.
In July of 2018, we held five Farm Clubs in different regional hubs across Alberta. Each gathering included a field tour and plenty of great discussions about intercropping, equipment, crop planning, weed management, and much more! To see what each group discussed, take a look at the notes listed below.
The next set of meetings will be taking place from November to February. Additionally, there will be an opportunity for the Farm Clubs to come together during the 2019 Central Conference from January 25-26!
