This afternoon event is part of the Farm Walks series presented by Tilth Alliance in collaboration with Washington State University. Meet the farmers from Arado Farm, Silva Family Farm, Regino’s Farm, Pure Nelida Organic Produce, Farias Farm, and Cabrera Farms, who grow at the Viva Farms incubator. Learn from both experienced and beginning growers about their innovations for planting, production and harvesting of strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries. Hear from WSU researchers and industry experts about best practices for post-harvest handling, shelf life, and fruit longevity. The Farm Walk will also touch on irrigation, pest and disease management, and food safety in organic production.
