The Manitoba Organic Alliance (MOA) is excited to welcome Katherine Stanley to the team, for a role made possible by a grant from Agriculture and AgriFood Canada, and partnerships with the University of Manitoba and the Province of Manitoba.

This is the first time in over five years that an agronomist has been employed in the province to offer support specifically to organic producers.

Stanley is well known in the Organics sector, and comes with invaluable education and experience, including:

-Masters of Science in Plant Science, University of Saskatchewan where she focused on mechanical weed control in organic pulse crops.
-Bachelor of Science, University of Manitoba in Agroecology
-Work over the last two years with the University of Manitoba Natural Systems Agriculture Program.

Stanley will be improving organic extension capacity in the province by offering educational opportunities and one on one support. This will include the February 2017 Prairie Organic Think Whole Farm Conference, regional Farm Clubs, farm tours, extension, and continued research with the University of Manitoba.

To connect with Katherine, please email info@manitobaorganicalliance.com.
