2012 Harvest at the Research Hop Yard in Mills River
I will be giving a presentation on
organic hops production at the Sustainable Agriculture Conference in Greenville,
SC on Sunday, October 28th. Last year, Scott King and I covered the basics of
organic hops production. This year I will focus on what is working for growers
and what the big challenges are. I am hoping a number of organic hop growers are
planning to be at the conference already and will attend and share their
experiences during this session. You are welcome to send me photos ahead of time
that I can incorporate into a Powerpoint presentation.
I ALSO HAVE AN OFFER TO MAKE; IF THERE IS AN EXPERIENCED
ORGANIC HOPS GROWER THAT WOULD LIKE TO BE A CO-PRESENTER WITH ME, I CAN OFFER
A FREE CONFERENCE REGISTRATION IN RETURN FOR HELPING ME DEVELOP
AND GIVE THIS PRESENTATION. You would have to cover your own lodging (not
particularly cheap in Greenville) and travel. Check out conference details on
the website. I can only offer this to one person, so tell me about your interest
in doing this and about your organic hops growing experience!
