Farmer-led Research Symposium and Planning Workshop

img_1723Interested in Farmer-Led Research?

Join us for the pre-conference Farmer-Led Research Symposium and Planning Workshop.

More information about the EFAO Farmer-led Research Program and the 2017 trials will be available soon!

Tuesday November 28 (afternoon and evening): Learn about the information generated this year by EFAO farmers in cooperation with the Farmer-led Research Program;  then network with farmer-researchers and fellow on-farm research enthusiasts at a casual reception at a nearby restaurant.

Wednesday November 29 (morning): Brainstorm and plan 2018 research projects. This is your opportunity to get involved! What do you need answered on your farm to move toward more ecological farming practices?

Please note that the Farmer-led Research Symposium and Planning Workshop registration is open to everyone.  It is not included in full conference registration, so select this as a separate option during your conference registration.
