MOFGA Agricultural Services and MOFGA Certification Services are pleased to announce this year's Growers Meetings. The meetings will take place in 3 locations. The theme of this year's Growers Meetings will be to continue our current strategic planning efforts and to understand how our technical services and certification staff can better serve growers throughout the state.
In 2015 MOFGA undertook a significant strategic planning effort. The first phase of this effort was focused on the mission and vision of the organization. In 2016 we will dig into programmatic activities and planning for the coming years. We are convening these meetings with the growers we serve to better understand needs and successes. You do not need to be a certified organic grower to attend these meetings. All are welcome!
