Members Free Register

Join Rebecca Ivanoff, EFAO Seed Program Manager, for this informal discussion.

Rebecca holds a M.S. in Anthropology and International Development from the University of Guelph and in 2013, she joined Whole Circle Farm as a CRAFT intern, and stayed on as staff to co-manage the 10-acre CSA and reintroduce seed production to the farm. During this time she also started the Southern Ontario Pepper Breeding Project with three other farmers in southern Ontario, with support from plant breeders at Cornell University and in cooperation with EFAO’s Farmer-Led Research Program. Now as EFAO’s Seed Program Manager she supports farmers to learn about regional seed production, and to implement participatory variety trials and plant breeding projects as part of The Bauta Family Initiative on Canadian Seed Security and EFAO’s Farmer-Led Research Program.  Bring your questions and ideas to this conversation!

This event is designed as a discussion space for new farmers but open to all EFAO members and those who are registered for Term 2 of the Ignatius New Farmer Training Program.
