** Please note the following changes that will be effective in 2019 **

These changes came about to clarify the process, as well as to keep costs down for the whole group (the reason many of us are not paying the full cost of the inspection is because of extensive coordination — this is only possible when everyone is on time with applications and payment).
– An earlier application deadline
– A higher late fee
– Paying full inspection fee if payment is late
– The applicant’s status will be changed to “Not in Good Standing”
– The applicant’s certificate will not be issued until they are a member in good standing

Fees include Associate Memberships for only $40 per year. Membership includes:
– a subscription to the quarterly publication, BC Organic Grower,
– access to a members list serve to share information, questions & resources,
– information about events, farm tours & workshops
