Guelph Organic Conference

Well, I am off the the Guelph Organic Conference this tomorrow.  I will be at the Quinte Organic Farmers Co-op booth downstairs in the University Centre.  come out and say to me and the other members helping out over the weekend.  We are promoting our co-op and always looking for more certified organic growers in the Hastings, Prince Edward and Northumberland counties to join us.  It's a really great way to help each other in many ways.  We support each other by helping out on farms, especially mentoring new farmers, we pool our products together and sell them in central areas such as Toronto markets.  The farming business is becoming harder each year, and when smaller family farms work together, then there is a much higher chance of all succeeding at earning  an income.  We can't always go it alone.
