Upcoming Fruit Growing Class

Growing Fruit for Market

November 17 and 24, 2009

6:30 – 8:30 pm

Nothing can beat the juicy, sweet taste of a fresh, locally-grown strawberry. Upcoming classes sponsored by Sedgwick County Extension will demystify fruit production for local growers in an effort to increase availability of delicious, locally produced fruit to consumers. The classes will cover the basics of fruit production including: commercial growing systems, harvesting, and marketing.


The first class, Growing Berries, will be held November 17, 2009. The second class, Growing Tree Fruit, will be held November 24, 2009. Both classes will be from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the Sunflower Room at the Sedgwick County Extension Education Center at 21st and Ridge in Wichita. Cost of registration is $5.
