How can small-scale farmers diversify their grain production? Learn from Dr. Martin Entz from the University of Manitoba who is the lead researcher of the only Participatory Plant Breeding (PPB) project in the country. The PPB is an innovative program that re-engages farmers to contribute to the development of new varieties suitable for ecological farming conditions. This workshop will take place at one of the participants to the PPB; Against the Grain Farms. Our hosts, Shelley Spruit and her husband Tony are successful farmers and food entrepreneurs who have been experimenting with corn and barley varieties not traditionally grown in Ontario. This is a half day on-farm workshop that will equip you with all of the skills you need to start diversifying grain varieties on your own farm!
