The Organic Growers' Research and Information-Sharing Network (OGRIN) generates practical information for organic farmers and gardeners through participatory research, review articles and fact sheets on issues critical to organic farming, and by providing forums for information-exchange between growers.
We welcome all growers, from those with large-scale production to those growing in the backyard, from experienced growers to those getting started in organic agriculture. While our focus is on organic/sustainable production, we welcome conventional producers who are interested in conversion to organic/sustainable methods, or in joining a discussion of sustainable management practices. Consumers and other end users of organic products and agricultural service providers are also most heartily encouraged to participate.
Elizabeth Dyck, founder and coordinator of OGRIN, has been growing organically for over 50 years. After completing a PhD in Plant Science through the sustainable agriculture program at the University of Maine, Orono, she has conducted participatory research with organic and low-input farmers and gardeners in Kenya, Minnesota, New York, and Pennsylvania. At Crimson Clover Farm, which she co-owns with her family and which is certified through Global Organic Alliance, she conducts research and demonstrations on organic management and grows vegetables.
If you are interested in participating in project work or have suggestions for research topics or information needs, please contact Elizabeth. She also needs your feedback on the information presented on this website. Through comments or emails, please let her know how it can be made more accessible and useful to you.
