Virtual Ecological Day – Monday January 11, 2021 – 11:30am to 4:25pm Eastern Standard Time

Ecological Day is a producer lead annual event related to Ecological Practices on Farms.  It has been running since 2003 and has been enjoying increasing popularity each year passes.  Organizers attempt to target small livestock producers, market gardeners, larger livestock farms, and field cropping.  The purpose of Ecological Day is to provide an opportunity for Ecologically / organic producers to meet and be educated on the latest technology; discuss pertinent marketing issues; learn about health / nutrition / soil topcis, and much more!  Participants can also interact and exchange ideas with fellow Ecological farmers.
