Organic Certification Information Session June 30

From our friends at Blue Ridge Food Ventures:

Interested in information about getting your product or farm organically certified? Brad Stancil, from Clemson University will take you through what is required for certification. The training can be applied across all facets of organic certification. So anyone from a vegetable grower to an egg producer to a salsa maker can get the information they will need to become certified organic. Hope to see you there!

Clemson University's Department of Plant Industry is a USDA approved Accredited Certifying Agent. This accreditation allows DPI (Department of Plant Industry) to certify organic operations in the three major categories of certification. Those three categories are crops, livestock and processing. The USDA's NOP (National Organic Program) Accreditation also allows DPI to certify operations anywhere in the world.

When: June 30, 2011, 6 - 8 pm

Where: AB-Tech, Enka Campus. Small Business Center. 1465 Sand Hill Rd. Candler, NC 28715
