What can you expect?
- FarmFolk CityFolk Seed Security Program Updates: Since 2013 FFCF has been the regional coordinating organization for the Bauta Family Initiative on Canadian Seed Security. Funding will be changing after 2018 which will change the nature of the program. Learn what we have achieved to date and what we now hope to do in the future
- New Funding: We have secured several new funding sources for the next 2-3 years. New funding means new programs and projects. We’ll update you on what’s to come in 2019 and how you can get involved.
- We want to hear from you! What has been your greatest challenge as a seed grower over the past few years and how can we best support you moving forward? What have been your greatest successes and how can you use this success to support others?
While we highly value regional meetings such as the BC Seed Gathering (which will be be back in 2019!) we are excited to be using this webinar format to reach audiences across BC. We hope you can attend.
How can you prepare?
If you have a success or challenge to share we’d love to hear it. What does the future of seed production look like to you? We want to hear that, too! Have our programs helped you meet your goals? We always love to hear that! Try to prepare some comments ahead of time if you can to share your story. This will help you keep it brief so we can hear from as many people as possible.
Questions: Come with questions or note them during the presentation.
