Participants will learn about the Pennsylvania Certified Organic (PCO) certification program called PCO Forest Grown Verification, which provides a third-party verification that specific products are grown and harvested in a sustainable manner, thereby offering a marketing advantage. The webinar will review the paperwork, process, fees and opportunities of the PCO program. Several examples of large-scale cooperative buying and marketing will also be highlighted. Presented by Tess Weigand, Coordinator and Inspector, PCO Forest Grown Verification Program Coordinator, and Leslie Horner, Forest Stewardship Program Associate, Center for Private Forests at Penn State.
