Hosted by the Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture Production and Mississippi State University:
Major activities will include presentations and demonstrations on strawberry culture and management; and tools to extend fruit and vegetable growing seasons by several weeks in the spring and fall. Lunch will be provided and include a strawberry taste testing, but please call to be added to the lunch count at (601-892-3731) or you may not get a chair or a chance to try some of those berries.
After lunch, participants will go to the field to see the strawberries they tasted at lunch and see examples of mulches, row tunnels, low tunnels, insect barrier cloths, high tunnels, and greenhouses. Participants will be able to try their hand at setting up some low tunnels, so bring your hat and boots.
There is no cost to attend this event, but preregistration is required. To register or for more information, please email [email protected].
