eOrganic Webinars

Did you know that the University of IL and other large universities have an extension website that offers free webinars on topics of interest to farmers and educators?



I listened/viewed the Planning your Organic Farm for Profit presentation by Richard Wiswall of Cate Farm in VA. Richard writes regularly for Growing for Market and has a new book The Organic Farmer's Business Handbook that comes with a CD of excel budget and cash flow templates. For anyone that is serious about growing food for profit, I highly recommend the monthly journal Growing for Market. I learn new things with every issue.

You can also listen at your convenience to past webinars. Several past and future sessions that are of interest to me are High Tunnel Production, Organic Blueberry Production, Increasing Plat & Soil Biodiversity on Organic Farmscapes and Cover Crop Selection.
