Organic Greenhouse Certification Webinar, August 6, 3-5pm CT
Iowa Organic Farmers invited to join CCOF's webinar on organic certification for greenhouses.
As urban farms continue to blossom, specialty greenhouses sprout up around the country, and mixed fruit and vegetable operations continue to produce their own transplants, CCOF has received more inquiries about the intricacies of organic certification for greenhouses. This webinar will cover what is necessary to certify your greenhouse. The information shared is applicable for certification with any organic certification agency.
Greenhouse production offers many advantages for organic growers. In addition to being used in specialty crop and custom transplant production, greenhouses offer opportunities for urban farmers or producers who wish to get a speedy start into organic production. They also serve as an integral part of many vegetable operations who produce their own transplants.
