Fall Reflections

What is Fall Reflections all about?  While the Canadian Organic Growers national charitable organization is required to convene a formal Annual General Meeting (AGM) each year, its local/regional chapters are not required to do so.  But the idea of reflecting on the achievements of each year as the new year approaches is a positive one, and a great reason for hosting a special gathering.  Fall Reflections is an opportunity for us to look back to the year completed, to thank all of our amazing volunteers for their involvement, and look forward to the coming year.
