EFAO Crop Planning WorkshopThe Ecological Farmers Association of Ontario and FarmStart, both Sustain Ontario Members, are hosting a Crop Planning for Market Gardeners workshop in Toronto on Sunday, November 6th, from 1 – 4 p.m. at AccessPoint on Danforth (3079 Danforth Avenue).

Frédéric Thériault of Tourne-Sol Co-operative Farm and co-author of Canadian Organic Growers’ Crop Planning for Organic Vegetable Growers will lead the half-day workshop on how to begin the crop planning process for your farm or market garden.

Participants will take away lessons to apply for future seasons, and can expect to create a foundation for crop plans, beginning with setting financial goals that can be developed into a marketing plan. Frederic will also touch on how to analyze the profitability of the crops you choose to grow.

Participants will also learn how to develop and implement a successful crop plan. Using their marketing plans, participants will develop a complete crop plan that includes field planting schedules, greenhouse schedules, and a seed order. Participants will also learn how to monitor and carry out this plan through the unpredictability of the growing season.

The cost to attend is $40 for EFAO members, and $60 for non-members (discounts are available when registering more than one person). If you’re interested in attending, register at
