2023 – Building Bridges

Thanks to everyone who joined us for the 2023 BC Organic Conference on Nov. 7 – 9 in Penticton! It was an honour to welcome farmers, students, like-minded organizations, members of the public and so many others from around the province for a chance to grow community, connections and knowledge over three incredible days.

Session topics included soil health, business management, current challenges in viticulture, pasture ecology and grazing, supply chains, adapting to climate change, and more. Attendees also enjoyed a tour of Covert Estate Family Winery, a tour of the Summerland Research & Development Centre, a packed trade show, and amazing organic meals.
