FOR 2017, WE ARE ONCE AGAIN HOPING FOR A FULL SLATE OF INFORMATIVE MEET & GREETS.
September, 2016 – Come to Guelph to absorb all the free information !
**What’s exactly is a Meet & Greet? It can be a 25-seat room where groups like OMRI or OCO holds an open gathering for 1-hour or longer. Any Conference guest can arrive at the start time/specific room, be greeted by the organizers, sometimes with organic coffee provided. You can generally attend for an hour while the Conference noon lunch break is going on – and it can be open to all, whether you paid for the Conference workshop admission or not (what a great deal).
**However, some Meet & Greets are listed as related to specific organic sector activists or farm consultants. Some programs are paid. Some are geared to organic regulatory sector staff who choose to pay a substantial registration fee – we list them here for public information & disclosure because these are the folks who inspect organic farmers & processors. Most Meet & Greets which will be listed here are set up to be free, open interest gatherings – which means YOU.
