Organic Broccoli Workshop!

 We are hosting a workshop on organic broccoli production on Wednesday September 19, 2012 from 11 am – 3 pm in Waynesville, NC. Come learn about organic broccoli production: insect management, post-harvest techniques, and marketing. Richard Boylan, Watauga County Extension Agent, Emily Bernstein, Research Specialist and Jeanine Davis, Associate Professor will all be presenting.  View 28 broccoli varieties and help rate which one is best, see which ones are most insect resistant, heat tolerant, and most delicious. If you RSVP to Emily (see below) we can ensure that there will be a lunch for you. If you don’t you are still welcome to attend, we just can’t guarantee a lunch.

Location: Mountain Research Station, 265 Test Farm Road, Waynesville, NC 28786-4016
