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
We are in the midst of redesigning the program for this first year, possibly starting in the fall of 2017. Please contact us by email for more details!
