Compost Council of Canada – Webinar
Dr. Lord Abbey is an Associate Professor at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia, with his research being carried out across many regions within Canada and overseas. Included amongst his research focus are: soil nutrient management systems, the value of compost and compost utilization, health-based sustainable food systems and food security as well as vegetable and fruit production.
With the support of Manitoba Conservation and Climate, the City of Brandon and The Compost Council of Canada, a 5-year research program has been carried out and completed in Brandon, Manitoba to: (1) determine the effects of Compost Quality Alliance (CQA)-tested green bin municipal solid waste compost on soil quality, plant growth and quality, and economic outcome of food crops; and (2) promote the agronomic use and marketing of the compost for food production.
Join in and hear the results of this remarkable research.
NSFA – Webinar
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, farms are being encouraged to use existing BRM programs to support their operations. Because of this we’re bringing in the financial experts to give us an in-depth look at AgriStability and AgriInvest.
Steve Funk, CPA, CA, MNP’s Director of Farm Income Programs is dedicated to helping agricultural producers understand the AgriStability Program and optimize their coverages and payments from the Program within the context of their overall farm insurance risk management strategy.
If your farm has never considered looking at these programs before, now is the time. There are supports available to many different farms, including supply managed farms, so you don’t want to miss any opportunity.
There will be a Q&A to answer your questions. The webinar will be recorded, so if you can’t make it, you will still get to watch! To register contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (902) 893-2293.
