Green Living Show 2013

OCO partnered with Green Living to create an Organic Expo within the Green Living Show!

The 2013 Green Living Show took place on April 12, 13, & 14th, 2013. OCO had a booth all weekend where we engaged in hundreds of conversations about organic agriculture and food sustainability; handed out our guide to local organic food in Ontario; and provided green consumers with relevant information. As hosts of the Organic Expo, OCO also had an educational zone that screened free movies and offered free workshops all weekend long. On Sunday, OCO executive director, Jodi Koberinski took to the main stage to present the first talk on OCO’s 2013 speaker tour: The “O” word: Demanding Organic For Health.

In this presentation Jodi Koberinski  helps answer the much debated question about whether organic offers significant health benefits and demonstrates why organic should be a part of your personal health strategy. Jodi address’ the latest wave of “anti-organic” press that has filled the media and prepares the audience to walk away with a greater understanding of the value of organic agriculture and food as well as being better equipped to critically evaluate information that is presented in the media in order to make informed decisions

We will be participating in a similar capacity next year so remember to visit next year’s show!
