Practical Produce Safety & Storage Quality Workshop April 11

RAFFL

April 11, 8:30-4, St Peter's Church, Vergennes, VT and Bella Farm, Monkton, VT. UVM Extension's Produce Safety Program, Farm-to-Institution Program, and Agricultural Engineer, Chris Callahan, in partnership with Addison County Relocalization Network (ACORN), are offering a day-long hands-on workshop on writing a farm safety for small and diversified fruit and vegetable farmers who market directly and locally.

The workshop will focus on infrastructure fixes related to produce safety and will include a special presentation by ag engineer Chris Callahan on cooler and storage design for produce safety and quality.

This is a great chance to get your farm manager/crew leaders trained in on-farm produce safety practices!  You will leave this workshop with a concise plan for you, your customers, and your employees. Cost: $35 or $25 per person if more than one person is coming from one farm.

Registration deadline: April 5.  Call Cheryl Herrick at 802-656-5459 to register, or register on-line at by clicking here.

To request a scholarship or disability-related accommodation to participate in this program, please contact Ginger Nickerson at (802) 505-8189 or gnickers@uvm.edu, by April 1 so we may assist you.  Please register as soon as possible if you are interested, as there is homework to do prior to the workshop.
