Central Kansas Vegetable Growers Workshop
Locally grown vegetables are fresh, delicious, and can boost the local economy. The first annual Central Kansas Vegetable Growers Workshop, sponsored by Sedgwick, Butler, Harvey, and Reno County Extension, will give beginning and experienced vegetable growers new skills to improve their production methods and marketing skills for selling their local vegetables, while meeting an increasing demand for locally grown produce. The keynote speaker, Patrice Gros, is a full-time organic vegetable farmer from Arkansas. The workshop will cover the basics of vegetable production including: building soil fertility, starting transplants from seed, season extension, crop planning, insect control, and marketing.
The workshop will be held February 6, 2010 from 8:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in 4-H Hall at the Sedgwick County Extension Education Center at 21st and Ridge in Wichita. Cost of registration is $10 before January 29, 2010 and $15 after.
