Webinar: Tomato Production for Organic Soil-Based Systems
In this interactive online session Dr.Vern Grubinger will share many “best practices” being used by organic high tunnel (hoophouse) tomato growers in the Northeast U.S. to optimize nutrient management and soil health. He’ll show pictures of these practices taken on a variety of farms, and share some recent on-farm research results. Growers are encouraged to ask questions, and share their experiences and knowledge.
Vern has been working with and learning from farmers for about 35 years. He’s the vegetable and berry specialist and Extension Professor with the University of Vermont, and director of the USDA’s Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education program (SARE), which makes grants to researchers, educators and farmers, see www.northeastsare.org.
