Get your creative juices flowing while you learn more about organic production topics like ancient grains, pollination, heritage  varieties, biodiversity and more in this illustrated journey through organic production in Canada.

Content-wise this colouring and activity booklet is geared for children aged 9-99, and all ages will enjoy colouring the illustrations, while mom or dad help with the recipes or read  aloud the accompanying facts about  basic organic  production. Let's all get a little closer to understanding where our healthy food comes from while having fun!

VIDEO PRESENTATIONS

Growing Quality Organic Grains

We were at the workshop at the Brandon Ag Days in January. We had our camcorder with us and were able to record the entire workshop. Here is the poster with the list of presentors.

We have now edited and posted two presentations: Roy Arnott on the Cost of Production of organic field crops. This one is now in HD (the one posted earlier was not). Michelle Carkner on 2016 field trials run by the Natural Farming System's team. More will be posted within a week. Check the poster and come back.

 

2018 will be here before we know it.
