About the event

Are you a North Dakota farmer looking to learn more about organic certification or ready to take the leap into the organic certification process? 🌱 Join us for our upcoming webinar, Diving Deeper Into Organic Certification!

This webinar will be held on Thursday, April 11th from 6:00pm - 8:30pm (CST) via Zoom. Registration is FREE but required.

Last fall we presented a four-part Intro to Organic Lunch-N-Learn series that can be viewed by clicking here. After that series, we decided that we should take a deeper dive into the essential requirements & regulations of the process, share valuable resources, and provide insight into the following questions:

  • What should beginning farmers be aware of when considering organic certification?
  • What are the benefits of being Certified Organic?
  • How can the reporting/record keeping process be simplified?
  • What challenges can farmers mitigate when completing the process?
  • How to keep track of rules and regulations when farming Certified Organic?
  • What resources are most useful during the certification process?

Meet the presenters:

  • Farmers will learn about the path to certification from Midwest Organic Consultant, Nicholas Podoll. He will highlight the regulations and procedures organic farmers must follow during the certification process and beyond completion.
  • They will also hear from a panel of North Dakota Certified Organic growers that will answer questions about their experience becoming Certified Organic - the successes, challenges, benefits, and more. These farmers include; Jonathan Moser (Forager Farm), Zach Paige (North Circle Seeds), and Glen Philbrick (Hiddendale Farm).

Take this opportunity to familiarize yourself with the Organic Certification process, ask questions, and meet other producers around the state interested in growing Organic!
