Organic Friends' E‑zine: March 2016

Photo of the Month, by Andy Hammermeister
The cold winter months could also be known as conference season across the country! There have many chances for Canada's organic community to get together to learn, network and exchange ideas.  As evidenced from this photo taken at the Guelph Organic Conference, attendance has been wonderful at the conferences, workshops and training opportunities that have been held over the past few months.

In this issue:
