The aim of the event is to provide growers with an overview of organic opportunities in Washington State and beyond, detailed information about the transition process and what it takes to get certified, and an opportunity to make direct connections with regional buyers of transitional and organic crops.
Presentations and sessions will include:

  • Overview of Organic Trends and Opportunities in Washington
  • Washington State University Extension
  • ABCs of Organic Certification
  • Oregon Tilth + WSDA Organic Program
