"Crop planning for organic vegetable growers" webinar, Part 2 of 2

Event date(s): 
12 December, 2013 - 19:30 - 21:00

This two-part webinar provides a much needed structure for figuring out how to make money on a market garden. It hones in on the core issues of farm success: which crops to grow, when to plant them, and in what quantities. Then it provides a logical, linear process for getting it all done, on time. It sets out 11 steps, including:

  • Decide how much money you need to make
  • Calculate how much of each veggie you have to sell to meet your financial goals
  • Decide where you will sell
  • Make field planting schedules to ensure you have the crops you need at the right time
  • Generate greenhouse/seed starting schedules
  • Fill out a seed order
  • Make a field operations calendar
  • Analyze profitability and refine your plans for next year

Note: It will be helpful to have a copy of the Crop Planning for Organic Vegetable Growers book on hand. Purchase your copy at www.cog.ca/shop
