This year we are excited to offer a special pre-tour workshop as part of our educational programming:

Join long-time organic farmer and leader, Jim Riddle, for a stimulating and engaging discussion of organic agriculture - the benefits, where we are and where we should be headed. The listening session will begin with a brief explanation of basic organic agriculture requirements, followed by exploration of current issues, research needs and policy opportunities, all rooted in organic farming realities. The session will end with an interactive discussion of the role of organic farming systems in building resilient sustainable communities, opportunities and ideas for organic growth. This exciting event is a collaborative effort of the Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University StateWide Small Farm Program, Frog Song Organics, and Free Mulch, Incorporated.

For more information, please register separately for the workshop here.
