Leadership Summit
















We’re excited to reach out about this year’s Leadership Summit, scheduled for October 18-19 in Deer Lake, NL. The theme for this year’s Leadership Summit is “The Costs of Farming,” and we’re planning sessions around that theme.


Day One will include sessions about land acquisition, business planning, incorporation vs sole proprietorship, financing/funding, marketing, and a Young Farmers Panel focused on community collaboration. We’re still in the planning stage and lining up speakers around these topics. There will be plenty of networking opportunities, and Day One ends with a networking banquet.


Day Two is a collaboration with NL Living Lab and includes farm tours to Wright’s Family Farm, Birchbark Farm, Larch Grove Farm, Rideout’s Farm and Cormack Bee Company. Topics covered include the practical economics of improving soil health, beneficial farm management practices, foraging, and the benefits of various technologies in farming.


Stay tuned for more information and about our schedule and registration process.
