About the Webinar

Research station experiments can be a valuable resource to demonstrate many of the ecological principles that underlie organic production practices.Charlie White and Molly Hamilton will share examples of engaging and hands-on field day activities that lead participants to discover and synthesize the ecological phenomena of different organic cropping system practices. They will talk about planning an extension event, advertising, and practical logistics. They will also discuss how to choose topics, locations, and speakers. You will also hear, from experience, how to make the event go smoothly (and learn from their mistakes).
