  • CORNWALL -- During the opening ceremonies at Eco Farm Day on Feb. 25, Stormont, Dundas and South Glengarry MPP Jim McDonell congratulated the Canadian Organic Growers on the launching of their Organic Success Program, which is supported by an Ontario Trillium Foundation grant of $65,100.

    A COG media release describes the 12-month pilot project as offering support "to Ontario farmers who are considering going through the organic certification process." Included in the project, designed for 25 producers, will be "on-farm tours, workshops, and mock farm inspections," with the first workshop held on Feb. 26 at the Ramada Inn Cornwall.

    OSP Manager Rachael Muller commented how "The Ontario Trillium Foundation's grant will help our program participants get past those myths" associated with certified organic farming while moving towards certification.

    MPP McDonell was pleased to "see the Ontario Trillium Foundation recognize the existing progress made by Ontario's organic growers and the potential for future development." He commented on the innovative, skilled and productive farm workforce in Ontario and the agri-food industry's ability to meet the growing demand for organic food.
