This two-day intensive retreat will help seasoned vegetable farmers advance their earning potential and enhance their management plans to boost soil fertility and yield. Led by long-time organic farming expert Linda Halley, session topics for larger scale sustainable farms will include: growing transplants efficiently; planting from transplants and direct seeding; weed control; meeting demands of distributors, institutions, stores, restaurants, and cooperatives; and picking, washing, packing, cooling, storing, and delivering your products to maximize efficiency and freshness. Participants will also enjoy downtime with informal information sharing and networking on the Procter Center’s picturesque grounds.
