Wheelbarrel is proud to present this seminar. The speaker is Yasir Sayed of BioFert.   He is a most knowledgeable and interesting speaker with a passion for organic farming and has graciously agreed to come and speak to us on the subject and answer questions.  You cannot help but come away with a lot of really good information.  This event will be of interest to everyone from those of us with small vegetable gardens to larger market gardens.

Mr. Sayed is a principal in Biofert located in Chilliwack. We (Wheelbarrel) have used and sold these products for the past 3 or 4 years and highly recommend them, noticing a difference in our bare root perennials, our own vegetable seeds and our personal gardens.

Following information is copied directly from the Biofert website.
