Faculty Visiting Speaker Series

Posted by stephanie rogers on January 27, 2022 in News

The Dalhousie Faculty of Agriculture is happy to offer an exciting Visiting Speaker Series once again.

Our first guest was Gregg Curwin from TruLeaf and Sperri.  

Given the pandemic situation, future presentations will be a combination of virtual and in-person offerings depending on the situation at the time of each presentation.

Please book these dates in your calendars. Presentations will run from 12:00 – 1:00 pm one Thursday per month.  A reminder will be sent prior to each event so you can access the link if given virtually. Feel free to share with interested external partners.

We look forward to seeing you and should you have any questions or require assistance, please do not hesitate to contact the organizing committee:
