Among its farmers and businesses, Haliburton Community Organic Farm offers an extraordinary combination of expertise, in certified organic farming methods, ecosystem restoration and biodiversity, and holistic nutrition. We have developed a curriculum tailored to students wishing to learn organic farming within a place-based, ecological context. Coursework includes a unique mix of classroom instruction and hands-on farming, ecosystem and food handling practices. Special emphasis will be placed on Indigenous food systems and the role of native species in a certified organic farming environment.
A New Format, A New Partnership
The program has been redesigned for this first year, starting in October 2017. We are excited to be joining forces with our longtime learning partner Royal Roads University in offering the program in four 5-day modules, one each for Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer.
We’re holding an Information Session on Sunday September 10 from 11am to 1pm, so please join us if you’d like to know more.
