Risk Management Workshop
for Tree Fruit and Grape Growers
Brought to you by Farm Management Canada and the B.C. Ministry of Agriculture and Food
Farm life can be unpredictable, even on the best days - weather, pests, market conditions, relationships, and more recently, COVID-19 can affect
not only day-to-day farm management but the future of the operation altogether.
In recent years, producers in B.C. have seen the devastating effects that certain risks can have on a farm. But, with risk, also comes opportunity for those who are positioned to take calculated risks. This is why it's important to plan for risk.
Farm Management Canada and the B.C. Ministry of Agriculture and Food invites
Tree Fruit and Grape Growers in the province of British Columbia to attend one of two Roots to Success Risk Management workshops taking place at the end of November to increase their ability to assess and address risks using a comprehensive approach to managing risk on the farm.
The workshop will allow you to:
o Gain knowledge, tools and resources to make better business decisions
o Share best practices and lessons learned with other producers
o Begin to create a comprehensive risk management plan tailored to your farm
We are offering 2 workshops:
o Osoyoos on November 28th 2022 ; and
o Kelowna on November 30th 2022
Facilitators: The workshops will be facilitated by Mathieu Lipari from Farm Management Canada in Ottawa and Jim Forbes who is the AgriShield advisor in BC.
By participating in this workshop, you will gain free access to AgriShield®, an online risk management platform for a period of one year.

Limited number of participants for each workshop.
These workshops are designed for BC Tree Fruit and Grape Growers only. For this reason, your registration will be reviewed. If your registration is
accepted, you will receive a follow-up email containing instructions about the event. Other workshops that are better suited to other producers and
professions will be advertised in the future.
Thanks to Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and the Agri-Risk Initiatives Program and to the BC Ministry of Agriculture and Food, this workshop is free to growers.
