SWCS Ontario Proudly Supports Innovative Farmers Association of Ontario 2017 Conference
The Innovative Farmers Association of Ontario is a group of farmers who share many of the same goals and ideas as SWCS. Sustainable farming practices, innovative approaches to managing fields for productivity and environmental protection, and sharing learnings with their fellow members. For this reason SWCS Ontario has decided to sponsor this year’s Innovative Farmers 2017 Conference that takes place next week.
As part of this sponsorship, we have one free conference registration. We are offering it to the first SWCS Ontario member who asks for it. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to ask for the registration. We’d be pleased if you let us announce your name on our website and to share a short note about your soil and water conservation activities. Send us an email to see if you are the first to request the one conference registration.
The conference takes place at the Lamplighter Inn in London Ontario on Tues/Wed 21/22 February.
The conference is sold out so this is your last chance to still attend. An email is being sent to all Ontario Chapter members as a bcc email so everyone has the same chance (if your emails is on file and your membership is current as of last week). Good luck! We’ll be monitoring our email inbox.
