The Iowa Organic Association (IOA) and regional partners delivered a series of virtual “Growing Organic Expertise in Iowa” workshops to provide the information, tools and resources needed for agriculture service providers and consultants to support farmers interested in organic transition, diversification and production.
Below are links to each of the recent three-hour “Growing Organic Expertise in Iowa” virtual workshops which include an agenda, as each workshop was slightly different. The webinars provided information from organic experts 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.
