Acorn Conference


  • Best Westen Glengarry Hotel

ACORN’s conference is a fun, 3-day event that brings together organic and sustainable farmers, processors and businesses from across the region––and beyond! Here’s what folks have had to say about our previous conferences:

“IT’S THE NUMBER ONE NETWORKING EVENT OF THE YEAR FOR FARMERS IN ATLANTIC CANADA!”

This workshop introduces key concepts from Zach’s book The Permaculture Market Garden. It starts with a crash course in natural science, builds understanding of ecosystem services, and proceeds with techniques for mapping and designing your farm to fit within a property’s environmental reality. It continues with holistic planning to balance your business and delves into routine improvement of your soil through brown brain Investment. This workshop culminates by outlying our Permabed system for patterning efficient garden diversity and how it serves as a framework for agro-ecosystem design. Immerse yourself in our farm design process and the possibilities for simplifying and improving your farm business or homestead.
