Roots to Success
Virtual Risk Management Training Workshops for Christmas Tree Growers


Farm life can be unpredictable, even on the best days – weather, pests, market conditions, relationships, and more recently, COVID-19, rising interest rates and supply disruptions can affect not only day-to-day farm management but the future of the operation altogether. 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 is inviting Christmas Tree Growers to attend the virtual Roots to Success Risk Management wokshop to increase their ability to assess and address risks using a comprehensive approach to managing risk on the farm.

The virtual workshop will allow you to:

  • Gain knowledge, tools and resources to make better business decisions
  • Share best practices and lessons learned with other producers
  • Begin to create a comprehensive risk management plan tailored to your farm

By participating in this virtual workshop, you will gain free access to AgriShield®, an online risk management platform for a period of one year.

Thanks to Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and the Agri-Risk Initiatives Program, this session is free to producers.
