From succession planning and maintaining independent ownership, to business management tools and systems for organic vegetable, seed and grain farmers, to supporting transitional producers to meet organic supply demands, to sustainable business practices that offer resilience in a competitive landscape—Thursday intensives will give you a deeper understanding of the topics and issues within these Educational Tracks: Business Management, Growing the Organic Market, Farm Management Techniques and Sustainability. Participants will choose their intensive on the registration form and will receive a certification of completion.

Educational. Reinvigorating. Thought provoking. Ground breaking. All this and a generous helping of fun. Organicology offers more than any other conference in the industry. The selection of high quality workshops and intensives are impressive. The organic trade show is a must-see. Organicology should not be missed.
