The saying goes, “luck favors the prepared” and for farmers this could not be truer, which is why we need to prepare for the growing season now! Growing your own food is incredibly rewarding, but for all levels of growers the planning stages can often be overwhelming.

In this hands-on workshop, Art Kirstein, Coordinator of Agricultural Economic Development will teach you how to successfully grow your own vegetables, with a focus on establishing and managing small vegetable projects. Tips on site preparation, seedling establishment, planting, maintenance and harvesting will be covered.
