Producing High Quality Organic Bread Wheat Workshop - Need to Register Today!

RAFFL

Apologies for the late announcement but today is the registration deadline for a workshop at Gleason Grains in Bridport, VT on Thursday, June 9 from 11 am to 3 pm. The workshop called, "Producing High Quality Organic Bread Wheat," will feature Ben and Theresa Gleason who have been growing and milling organic wheat for more than 29 years. The day will include a tour of their renovated processing facility and a discussion about a NE-SARE Partnership grant project where Ben and Heather Darby of UVM Extension are investigating the effects of topdressing organic soil amendments on wheat growth, production and quality.

More information about the workshop can be found at: http://www.uvm.edu/extension/cropsoil/wp-content/uploads/GleasonGrainsWorkshop2011.pdf.

The workshop fee is $15 per person, which includes lunch provided by the NOFA-VT pizza oven.
