Post-harvest Handling — August 8, 3 hours
One of the most crucial parts of vegetable production is post-harvest handling. With proper care after harvest, your crop will not only look amazing, but it will last longer on the shelf and will be safe to eat. Come learn about techniques, tools, and systems that will help you maximize the salable portion of your harvested crop while maintaining a level of efficiency and safety.
**Each workshop also qualifies for education hours for MSUE Master Gardeners!**
