Regional Crop Storage Workshop Series

PRE-REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED! 

Day-of Registration (8:30 - 9 a.m.): $45 ACORN Members, $60 Non-Members (Includes coffee breaks, but lunch is NOT included with day-of registration)

Looking to install a new crop storage system but unsure of your needs and requirements? 

Curious about crop storage temperatures, post harvest handling and effective methods to ensure high quality, local, organic storage vegetables year-round?

Join ACORN and our Regional Partners* for the 2014 Crop Storage Regional Workshop Series presented by University of Vermont Extension's Agricultural Engineer Chris Callahan.

Planned as a traveling workshop intended to connect farmers in different areas of the provinces, reduce producer travel times and bring the resources of ACORN directly to its members, ACORN will host this day-long crop storage regional workshop in five Maritime cities. 

As demand and interest in year-round availability of local, organic vegetables increases, producers have requested further information related to designing effective on-farm crop storage systems.

Crop storage can be costly and the construction and operation of an efficient and well-designed system is essential to a farm’s profitability in winter and early spring markets.

These workshops will include a combination of instruction, group discussion, hands-on activities, and individual work time.

Workshops will be open to fruit and vegetable growers, wholesalers, processors and distributors of all scales.

PRE-REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED! 

Day-of Registration (8:30 - 9 a.m.): $45 ACORN Members, $60 Non-Members (Includes coffee breaks, but lunch is NOT included with day-of registration)
