Vegetable producers in West Michigan are invited to attend this workshop on three important topics: 1) organic pesticide safety; 2) understanding your soil test and what pH, macro- and micronutrient values tell you about managing your soils; and 3) incorporating cover crops into small-scale vegetable production.
Participants will also have an opportunity to promote their farm and products to area K-12 school and hospital food service directors that are interested in purchasing locally grown vegetables.
Participants are invited to purchase their own lunch in the Market Hall at one of the many excellent food businesses at the Downtown Market. For more information about the Grand Rapids Downtown Market, visit http://www.downtownmarketgr.com
