Steve Reiners, Horticulture Professor, and I will be leading an informal grower discussion focusing on vegetable production, especially fertility and irrigation, but other questions are welcome as well. This will be a follow-up on last February’s visit from Steve, so we hope those of you who came then will come again, and those of you who couldn’t join us, will be able to this time.
Please do let me know if you’re coming to that one so we can be sure to have enough food, too.

Join us on December 3rd at the at the Cornell Research Farm and Farmhouse in Willsboro from 10 til noon.
Mike Davis (farm manager at Cornell’s Research Farm in Willsboro) and Amy Ivy will be leading an informal grower discussion focusing on various types of tunnels and cool season crops.
We’ll take a look at the variety of late fall crops Mike has growing in the high tunnel there, then move indoors for a grower discussion and snacks.
We especially encourage newer growers to come and get some ideas and ask questions – we all have plenty to learn from each other! But all growers are more than welcome, of course, and we hope some of the more experienced folks will come to give us some perspective.
Please do let me know if you’re coming so we can be sure to have enough food for everyone.
