Assistance Programs and Educational Resources for Organic Farms

March 21, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

One of the biggest challenges for transitioning and organic producers is being unsure of where to go, or who to contact, for assistance. Finding the right answers to questions and figuring out how to apply for assistance programs is a difficult task.

Drew Katz, transition services coordinator at Oregon Tilth, will provide an overview of available assistance programs for organic producers and how to apply for them. Additionally, our presenters will give a virtual tour of some of the best organic educational resources currently available on the web. Assistance programs covered in the webinar will include:

  • Organic Certification Cost Share Program
  • NRCS CAP 138 and EQIP
  • FSA Loans for organic producers
  • Mentorship Programs
  • …and more

Speakers:
Drew Katz, Transition Services Coordinator, Oregon Tilth
