March 10, 2017, Simcoe, Ont. – Looking to innovate and improve your competitiveness? Growing Forward 2 can help.

Information on the popular program is included in our GF2 webinar, recorded earlier this month and now posted to our website. Click here to register and view the free webinar. It runs just over 45 minutes.

The webinar sponsor is GGS Structures Inc.


The greenhouse sector has been among the most active sectors in accessing GF2 funding, according to Barb Caswell, GF2 coordinator with the Ontario Soil and Crop Improvement Association.

Caswell was the presenter at our March 2 webinar and knows the program inside and out.

This federal-provincial-territorial initiative has helped many farmers across Canada grow their operations, including many greenhouse producers. While the program is national in scope, program delivery is slightly different across the provinces.

In Ontario, the program is delivered to farmers by the Ontario Soil and Crop Improvement Association.

This, in turn, steers analysis of what products and processes need improvement to achieve higher margins.”
