Description

TWO DAY WORKSHOP:

Interested in growing organic produce? This is the workshop for you! The morning session will walk you through the basics of what it means to grow certified organic produce and what would be required of you a producer. You will also learn about the certification process and what an inspector is looking for. On the second day we will head to a nearby farm where you will conduct a mock-inspection. You will also be able to talk to the farmer to dicuss their operation.

The workshop is taught by Amanda Tedrow, University of Georgia Extension Agent who specializes in organic production and Marty Mesh who is the Executive Director of Florida Organic Growers.

Due to the interactive nature of the workshop space will be limited. A light lunch is included. Registration is free.
