New Entry Sustainable Farming Project is offering its third 5-week Crop Production Workshop, taking place virtually with optional opportunities to work and learn in-person at Moraine Farm. The online portion of the workshop takes place every Tuesday evening. Participants will learn basic horticulture principles and practices associated with organic vegetable production while exploring how to harvest, wash, and pack vegetables for a variety of local market outlets. Participants have the option to work with the New Entry Food Hub to explore aggregation and distribution of local produce, in addition to working in the field to harvest and maintain crops. Additional themes will focus on food safety and post-harvest handling.
