Vets Growing Berries

  • Saturday, April 23, 2016, 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Calling at Veterans located in the Southern Tier:

Do you have an interest in growing strawberries, raspberries, blackberries or other small fruits? Maybe you’d like to start a u-pick, or sell at your local farmers market?

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Broome County will be hosting a workshop with Cornell University faculty to teach about growing and marketing berries, and then will host an on-farm hands-on component at a local farm to see some techniques in action.

Cost: $15pp, includes lunch and all materials

Priority for spots will be given to veterans in the Southern Tier, but others are welcome to attend as space permits.

This material is based upon work that is supported by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, U.S. Department of Agriculture, under award number 2015-70017-22882.
