Dane County UW-Extension and the FairShare CSA Coalition are teaming up again to put on the 2016 Southern Wisconsin Vegetable Production Workshops. Join us to learn detailed production information on specific vegetable crops from farmer presenters representing a variety of scales and techniques. Extension specialists will also share current research on the crops. Though these workshops are not exclusively organic, there is a focus on organic practices.
Each workshop is enhanced by a handout including detailed production notes from each of three farmer presenters per crop. Download past handouts, learn more, and register at the Vegetable Production Workshops event page.
