 Organic University (Organic U) is offered to beginning farmers and those new-to-organic as an almost day-long workshop as part of the MOA Annual Conference and Business Meeting. It offers the chance to meet seasoned inspectors, producers, and other professionals to learn about how organic certification and production can work for you. The instructors have experience in diverse operations; from small scale direct-to-market, to large scale grain, pulse, and livestock operations, as well as experience with alternative crops such as hemp and other oilseeds. Visit the Organic U schedule here.

 As part of Organic U, Organic Inspector Margaret Scoles will help you develop your own Organic System Plan. Clif Bar & Company is supporting this outstanding opportunity to help you on the path to become certified organic. The sessions are also appropriate for those with questions about their existing certified operation. Please complete the registration below.
