Horticulture Meet-ups

Farmers who grow vegetables, fruit, flowers, and orchard crops will gather together in locations around the state meet one another, build relationships, share plans and ideas with others in their regions, and learn as they all prepare for the coming season.

Please RSVP by emailing PFI’s senior horticulture education coordinator Jacqueline Venner Senske at jacqueline.venner.senske@practicalfarmers.org or by calling the office at (515) 232-5661.
