Description from MOFFA: “MOFFA ORGANIC INTENSIVES is a day-long, concentrated learning experience for farmers and serious gardeners. As participants in the plethora of Michigan conferences, as well as hosting our own conference for many years, we believed that if we could channel our resources into a day of intensive coverage of a limited number of specific topics we could fill a need that currently was not being met. In addition this would allow us,as a volunteer-run non-profit organization,to maximize our resources in a realistic manner.”
For 2017, MOFFA is working with individuals who are recognized experts and educators in one of three topic areas:
- Pest Management for Diversified Farms
- Organic Field Crop Marketing
- Successful Organic Gardening
See this flyer for schedule and more details.
The cost for the full day of Organic Intensives is $75 for MOFFA members and $85 for non-members—but only until February 15. After that date, the registration fee will increase to $85 for members and $95 for non-members.
