Join OSA’s Micaela Colley and our partners from the Carrot Improvement for Organic Agriculture (CIOA) and Tomato Organic Management and Improvement (TOMI) projects this August for a one-day classroom and field-based workshop on organic seed production and variety development.
Learn the fundamentals needed to grow organic vegetable seed, including seed biology, harvesting, storage, and how to conduct variety trials. In addition to a classroom intensive, we’ll tour The Student Farm and taste carrot and tomato varieties from current trials with a local chef.
Purdue Extension is hosting the training on August 22, 2017, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Daniel Turf Center and The Student Farm in West Lafayette, Indiana. Registration is $15 and includes the daylong training and catered lunch.
