NCAT To Host Organic Farming Workshop in Florida

by Meaghan Donovan |

Join the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) in Florida on May 13 for a workshop that reviews what it takes to be a USDA-certified organic farmer.

The two-part workshop will start with a classroom session introducing participants to organic regulations from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in Lecanto, Florida. Then, in the afternoon, tour Danley Family Farm, a livestock operation in Floral City, Florida, where participants will walk the farm with an organic inspector and learn firsthand about the organic inspection process. Through a “mock inspection,” participants will learn what steps the producer would need to take to become certified organic.
