APRIL 18: Seed Economics Webinar

Posted by Dana Penrice on March 06, 2018

Are you growing seed or want to start but are not sure if a seed crop can give you a financial return? FarmFolk CityFolk, in collaboration with UBC Farm, has been developing enterprise budget spreadsheets for seed production in BC to help answer this question.

This webinar will walk you through seed production budget templates that will help you better understand the economics of integrating seed production into your farm. Sample templates with real BC seed production data will be included so you can begin developing your own seed enterprise budget right away.

The session will also explore options for growing seed under contract. How to get started, what to include in contracts and case studies of how contacts have worked for individual growers and cooperatives will be included.

When: April 18, 2018, 10:00 am – 11:30 am PST
Where: Online, login details to follow
Who: The webinar presenters are Shauna MacKinnon and Chris Thoreau form FarmFolk CityFolk’s Seed Security Program and the Bauta Family Initiative on Canadian Seed Security.
