IOA Workshop: Growing Organic Expertise - Kalona

The Iowa Organic Association (IOA) and regional partners will deliver a series of “Growing Organic Expertise in Iowa” organic workshops in January and February 2021 to provide the information, tools and resources needed for agriculture service providers and consultants to support farmers interested in organic transition, diversification and expansion.

This full-day workshop has been condensed to a three-hour virtual program to accommodate for safety and greater accessibility. We hope to offer small, in-person field events in the Spring/Summer (COVID depending) to follow-up these virtual workshops.

IOA will provide information from organic experts and resources about the National Organic Program, organic certification and transition, organic standards and production practices and insight into current organic market trends and demands. 

The target audience for the workshop includes: NRCS, Extension, IDALS, FSA, SWCD, RC&D, County Conservation, crop insurance agents, farm lenders, farming organizations, farmers, agriculture educators and students, and others interested in learning more about organic opportunities.

The Kalona-area will be the region of focus (target outreach and promotion) for our first Growing Organic Expertise in Iowa Workshop on Tues, Feb 16 from 12 – 3 p.m.  The region focus is to help develop community and support beyond the workshop. You do not have to be from this region to participate – anyone is welcome.

There is no cost to participate, but, you must RSVP to join this workshop.  RSVP below.
