Organic Alberta has announced the 2015 Organic Beef Mentorship program.
Selected transitioning producers will be paired with experienced producers to help them transition their herd. Mentees do not have to be certified organic at the time of the mentorship.
The program includes a site visit by the mentor to the mentee’s farm, as well as followup phone calls and emails. Mentors are paid up to eight hours for their time, to provide one- on-one coaching. Mentees pay $100 to participate.
For more information email Melisa Zapisocky, or call 587-251-2400.
