Make it Your New Year's Resolution to Offer More Support for Organic and Sustainable Food and Farming in Manitoba!!

Greetings and Happy New Year from all of us at the Organic Food Council of Manitoba!

2009 was an extremely busy and exciting year for the Organic Food Council of MB (OFCM-COG), as well as for the organic sector in Manitoba and across Canada. THANK YOU! for your ongoing support and interest in OFCM-COG and our programs:
Growing Up Organic (GUO) and Manitoba Farm Mentorship (MFM).

Here's a sampling of what's new at OFCM-COG:

We simply cannot do what we do without the support of our members, program participants, and sponsors, and all of the champions of Manitoba's sustainable food and farming movement - YOU!

Please continue to offer your support:

If you aren't already an OFCM-COG member, please consider becoming one!

Or, make a direct donation online or through the mail to MFM or GUO.

Memberships are donation-based, and as a chapter of Canadian Organic Growers (COG), we receive 40% of membership dollars, which helps to support our activities here in Manitoba.

Support for GUO helps us to encourage schools, child care facilities and other institutions to source more organic food. Donate, or become a program sponsor.

Support for MFM helps us to encourage sustainable and organic farming as a career choice in MB. Donate, or become a program sponsor.

What about advertising for your farm or business? We offer online advertising and flexible sponsorship opportunities, and a significant and targeted network with which to promote your products and services. Prices are reasonable and options are flexible. Contact us for more details.
