The AGM will continue to be held at the Delhi German Home and a full evening is planned. There will be a social hour from 4:30 to 8 pm, with numerous agricultural business vendor booths open for perusal and to interact with attendees – similar to a trade show.
The Norfolk Soil and Crop Improvement Association is a volunteer organization serving area farmers. It has been in existence for 81 years now and landowners can turn to them for answers to any questions they might have regarding soil, crops and test soil. They are involved in environmental farm plans as well as soil and crop research.
As a member of the Ontario Soil and Crop Improvement Association there are a number of programs available to research and frequent workshops to attend. The OSCIA is a not-for-profit organization representing all ‘commodity groups’ across the province and their head office is located in Guelph.
While all are invited to join the NSCIA organization, it is necessary to complete an application for membership and pay the yearly fee of $30.00. Members meet monthly with an Annual General Meeting held each year during the winter months.
At a recent director’s meeting a tentative AGM date of either January 24th. or 26th 2023 is being considered. The final date will depend on the availability of proposed speakers but they agree it will be held during the last week of January.
The AGM will continue to be held at the Delhi German Home and a full evening is planned. There will be a social hour from 4:30 to 6 pm, with numerous agricultural business vendor booths open for perusal and to interact with attendees – similar to a trade show. This will be followed by a dinner, served by the ladies of the German Home, and it is always a popular draw. Their business meeting will follow, with a guest speaker yet to be determined at this point. The evening usually wraps up around 9 pm and is a good way to network within the agriculture industry here in Norfolk County. Cost for the event is $40 per ticket, purchased in advance, and is open to the public.
Organizers are quite excited to be able to once again meet in person since their last in person event was in January of 2020 – pre Covid. If you are interested in attending or exhibiting contact Tracey Kloepfer-Court at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With the rich farming history of Norfolk County these meetings are a very important way for farmers to keep on top of all things new while catching up with fellow growers. “It’s a good event for networking within the agriculture industry of Norfolk” adds Tracey.
