With current restrictions on gatherings and social distancing protocols in place, we will be offering events in new formats this year.
Webinar: Offered in a more traditional workshop format, participants can expect to spend 60-90 minutes learning about a specific topic with some time for questions with expert speakers and farmers from Ontario and beyond.
Virtual Field Day: Participants will view a recorded tour of a farm in Ontario, with a specific topic focus. Then the host farmer(s) will join participants for an hour-long discussion and opportunity for questions. Some Virtual Field Days will be offered live or a combination of pre-recorded content and live tours or demonstrations.
Virtual Meet-up: An opportunity for EFAO members to gather online for community connection or discussion focused on specific topics or by production type/group.
Video Tutorials and Recorded Workshops: Short, pre-recorded videos and recorded workshops from farmers across the province as they share ideas, strategies and information about ecological agriculture. These will be offered both informally and in more of a recorded lecture format.
In-person Events – Field Days, Workshops and the annual EFAO Conference: We will continue to monitor and reassess as protocols and recommendations change and look forward to gathering in person again, once it is safe to do so.
While virtual events are best experienced through an internet connection, webinars and online meet-ups do have a phone-in option. Please be in touch for more information.
