Description

Are you a farmer who wants to obtain organic certification?

Are you thinking of starting a farm and wondering if organic certification makes sense for you?

This multi course workshop will guide you through the organic crop and livestock certification process.

We’ll start with an overview of the certification process including a description of what’s allowed, prohibited and restricted under the organic standards.  Next we’ll cover how to find a certifying agent and work with them to complete your organic system plan.  Finally, we’ll walk through the on-farm organic inspection and your ongoing responsibilities as a certified organic farmer.

This workshop will provide you all the tools you need to have your farm certified organic.

The class will be taught by  Al Johnson, one of the country’s most experienced organic inspectors. Attendees will receive follow-up support as they pursue organic certification.

Three Sessions November 4, 11, and 18 from 6-7:30 PM

50% Scholarships are available to beginning farmers. Email education@nofanj.org with a description of your farm and scholarship need.
