Specialty Crop Grower Topics Focus of Cheyenne Two-Day Conference

November 3, 2016

All-day workshops the first day and numerous sessions the next -- all focused on specialty crop grower themes -- are part of the Farm to Market Conference in Cheyenne Friday and Saturday, Nov. 11-12.

The Laramie County office of the University of Wyoming Extension and the Wyoming Department of Agriculture (WDA) are hosting the event at Laramie County Community College (LCCC), says Catherine Wissner, Laramie County extension horticulturist.

Registration and other information are at bit.ly/farmtomarket2016.

Friday’s all-day workshops include food acidification, plant breeding for seed saving, market manager education and a hands-on high tunnel build, which will be used in LCCC’s community garden and for the Master Gardener program.

Saturday sessions range from developing a marketing plan to soil health issues and building soil health, to grants for value-added products, hoop house production and growing nitrogen on your farm that all plants can use.

For more information, call Wissner at (307) 633-4383 or Ted Craig with the WDA at (307) 777-6651.
