Ontario Farming 101: Where farmers gather to grow their knowledge



    ST. CATHARINES, ON, Feb. 18 /CNW/ - It is a gathering for Ontario growers
run by the growers, where farmers get to learn/discuss/debate topics that
relate to how they make a living. You'll find it all at Canada's premier
horticultural event which opens today at Brock University.
    Join over 1,000 participants from across Ontario for two days of speaker
sessions and demonstrations, providing producers with the latest growing
methods from around the province, across the country and throughout the world.
New sessions for 2009 include a profile of agriculture in China, how to manage
the weather, labour and human resources as they affect the farm as well as a
dynamic presentation entitled "Not Your Dad's Farm - Current Trends of Farm
Use of the Internet" presented by best-selling author and internet marketing
specialist Susan Sweeney.
