Roots to Success
Virtual Risk Management Training Workshops for Hemp Growers


Farm Management Canada, the Canadian Herb, Spice & Specialty Ag & Natural Health Products Coalition (CHSNC), and Fresh Hemp Foods Ltd are pleased to be bringing this FREE G.A.C.P. & Roots to Success training workshop to Hemp Growers!

Farm life can be unpredictable, even on the best days – weather, pests, market conditions, relationships, financial issues, 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 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.

The virtual workshop will allow you to:

  • Build a risk management program that you can show to your financial institutions, buyers and insurers, so they get the reassurance they need.
  • Gain knowledge, tools and resources to make better business decisions and manage your risk
  • Receive your GACP certification
  • Share best practices and lessons learned with others that are in similar situations
  • Begin to create a comprehensive risk management plan tailored to your farm

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

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