FREE ORGANIC BROCCOLI PRODUCTION WORKSHOP IN WAYNESVILLE
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
