Seed Seminars at Guelph Organic Conference

Saturday January 28, 2017          
Guelph University
Guelph, ON

The Future of Canadian Organic Grains
Dr. Martin Entz, University of Manitoba
Iris Vaisman, The Bauta Family Initiative on Canadian Seed Security
Saturday, January 28
1:45pm - 3:15pm

Organic grains have never been in higher demand than they are today. However, Canadian producers have not been able to keep up supply. We need more organic farmers growing diversified quantities of good quality organic grains. How can we grow the sector?

The presenters will discuss best management practices for organic grains, and how growers and organizations are increasing the supply of diversified organic grains to create new opportunities for organic farmers.
Organic Plant Breeding: How to Create the Heirlooms of Tomorrow
Duane Falk, The Bauta Family Initiative on Canadian Seed Security
Rebecca Ivanoff, Whole Circle Farm
Sunday, January 29
1:30pm - 3:00pm
Farmers are the original plant breeders. But the practice of plant breeding has disappeared from most farms, and is now in the hands of only a few agricultural institutions and companies – how can we bring back this lost art into the farming community again?

At this session, get a crash course on the basic concepts of plant breeding, and hear the success stories of organic farmers and seed producers that are breeding and developing new on-farm varieties today, that will become the heirlooms of tomorrow.

Started a seed business in 1989, selling thousands of heritage vegetable plants and later branched into seed sales. She has managed to acquire and grow over 1600 varieties of which she now maintains about 30% in order to slow down (a little). She no longer offers plants but seed sales keeps her quite busy. Mandy is fairly well known in the seed saving circles and speaks all over the province. Check out her website:

Her presentation will expose the wonders of these exciting “old time” vegetables by bringing some rare seeds to show and tell(world collection says there are close to 26,000!) including a photo slide show.
