2016 MEET & GREETS – LIST – being developed
June, 2015 – plan ahead – if you’re thinking about a Meet & Greet for a special/specific type of gathering, contact the manager right away. Friday, Saturday & Sunday space available
For 2016, these Meet & Greet rooms (and trainings) will run.
Friday, January 29
Saturday, January 30
OMRI – Meet & Greet Room – UC332
Society For BioDynamic Farming – Meet & Greet Room UC334
SATURDAY EVENING – IN GUELPH/Best Western – The BioDynamic Food & Wine Event at the Best Western
What is a Meet & Greet? It’s a free 25-seat room where groups like FarmStart or the Fibreshed folks or OMRI will announce an open gathering for 1-hour or longer. Conference guests arriving at the start time & specific room will be greeted by the organizers.
Anyone can attend for an hour while the main Conference noon lunch break is going on – whether you paid for the Conference workshop admission or not (what a great deal).
Certain Meet & Greets are only for specific organic sector activists. For others, farm consulting specialists will attend. Some programs are paid: e.g. the BD wine tasting. Or with programs like the past International Organic Inspectors trainings – these trainings are geared to those in the organic regulatory sector choosing to pay the registration fee. But in most cases, all the Meet & Greets listed here are set up to be free, open interest gatherings – which means YOU.
