Cherokee County Greens Production Workshop

August 22 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

These workshops are aimed at training growers considering production of greens for direct market outlets (tailgate markets, farm stands, CSA, etc.). Craig Mauney, Area Specialized Agent, Commercial Fruit and Vegetable Production will lead the group at each farm in discussing production practices for growing a variety of greens in the region.
Specific topics include cultivar selection, site establishment (soil conditions and planting), fertilization, irrigation, pruning, harvesting, and resources for pest control. Workshop includes a lecture followed by a hands on activity such as disease scouting or harvesting. All participants receive a resource notebook and a scouting lens to take home to their farm.
