To celebrate the 20th anniversary of family farmer organic baskets and in response to the increasing demand for local organic produce, Équiterre is organizing the conference Des idées à récolter - Succès et innovation en agriculture de proximité [Ideas to Harvest - Success and Innovations in Local Farming].
Register now to learn about successful and innovative local marketing initiatives on December 2 and 3, at Montreal’s Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec.
The conference will bring local farming and local marketing enthusiasts together under one roof! The program will include talks by experts from here and abroad, such as pioneers of the CSA system in France (known as AMAP), farm tours and local initiatives, plus a networking evening.
This is a unique opportunity for producers, agri-food stakeholders, decision makers and researchers in the field to network and share ideas and know-how. Come and get inspired by promising and innovative initiatives to make local produce more accessible to local people.
