Transitioning to Organic Farm Walk

August 7, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm

$15 – $25

WSDA Organic Program, in conjunction with Washington State University and Tilth Alliance, is proud to present a Farm Walk on Transitioning farms to certified organic.

Join us at KS Orchards in Grant County where growers will share their experience in adopting organic practices and completing the certification process. Owner Dain Craver has successfully transitioned several of his orchards to organic, including KS Orchards, which has been certified since 2010. Representatives from the WSDA Organic Program will also be available to answer questions regarding the certification process and connect you with resources to successfully transition your own operation. For more information on organic certification, visit the WSDA Organic Program website.

This event begins at noon with an informal brown bag lunch (bring your own) and you can visit with the speakers and fellow attendees. The farm walk begins at 12:30 pm and goes until 3:30 pm.
