Farm Facts & Furrows

Agricultural Symposium Survey:

The West Nipissing Agricultural Task Force (WNATF) Committee is organizing an Agricultural Symposium in March 2016 and is seeking your input. The agricultural symposium will raise awareness of the full sector needs in Northeastern Ontario, cover diverse topics of interest such as the role of agriculture in the local economy, and feature guest speakers, local farmers, and dynamic facilitators for break-out sessions. Please complete the survey to assist us in identifying topics of interest that you would like to see addressed at the symposium. The WNATF is governed by a committee made up of sector business owners, key stakeholders and members of the West Nipissing Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. The role of the WNATF is to increase awareness for the food that is produced in the area and market the advantages of eating locally sourced food. The committee is focused on educating the community at large on the value of shopping and eating locally and how it benefits residents and local business. Please complete the following survey and provide your input by November 30, 2015. We appreciate your participation. Agricultural Symposium Survey link:
