WEBINAR: How Growing Forward 2 can work for you

January 27, 2017
Written by Greenhouse Canada
Looking to innovate and improve your competitiveness? Growing Forward 2 can help.

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.

“Whether you are starting out, or have been in business a long time, GF2 can help you reach your goals,” notes the program website.

“The program offers resources, tools and cost-share funding assistance to eligible producers, processors, organizations and collaborations to grow their profits, expand markets and manage shared risks.”

In Ontario, the program is delivered to farmers by the Ontario Soil and Crop Improvement Association. Leading our webinar will be OSCIA program coordinator Barbara Caswell. She will outline how GF2 works in Ontario.

Growing up in a small farm town in Ontario, Barb has worked closely with the farming community. Since completing her Master’s of Science at the University of Guelph in 2004, she has worked with the Turkey Farmers of Canada and the Canadian Sheep Federation, before joining OSCIA as a Program Coordinator for GF2.
