Welcome to "ON Organic"
Welcome to the June 2009 issue of ON Organic. Summer has arrived (we hope) after a cool damp spring for many. This newsletter includes a range of information on organic livestock, Foodland Ontario and several articles from OMAFRA newsletters relevant to organic crops. The final version of the new federal organic regulation should also be announced any day now and is expected to be implemented on June 30, 2009. Also check out the many tours and workshops going on over the next couple months. Summer is a good time to look around at what others are doing and to share each others experiences.
Thanks to Ecological Farmers Association of Ontario (EFAO) and Organic Council of Ontario (OCO) for forwarding this on to their email lists, and I encourage you to share it with other colleagues who may find it useful. A special thank you to those who answered our survey to give us comments and suggestions on the newsletter. As always we welcome your comments.
