This survey is to help Canadian Organic Growers understand what motivates farmers to consider becoming organic, as well as what prevents them from actually doing it. We want to know the barriers to organic production locally. In addition, we ask about how to better deliver Farmer Outreach and Training services that would help farmers transition to, or develop existing, organic production practices.

This survey has been closed. Time to analyze and report and then put reports into action. Thanks to everyone who responded. Please feel free to use this forum to further the discussion here or contact me directly with regards to the survey and organic farming.
