Join this webinar to learn about production and marketing challenges and opportunities for farming organically in urban environments. Organic producers of all sizes and across all landscapes must follow the same national standards to meet the requirements of USDA organic certification. However, certified organic farmers and farmers using organic growing practices may have different production and market opportunities and challenges when growing in an urban environment. This webinar will explore research in this field, as well as perspectives from farmers on growing organically in urban spaces. This webinar is presented in partnership with Oregon Tilth, as part of a series of webinars on organic topics.
