EVENTS

Berry Growers Weekly Info Exchange

Continues on Mondays at 8:00 p.m.

PVGA (Pennsylvania Vegetable Growers Association) will continue hosting a weekly get-together for berry growers each Monday night at 8:00 p.m., where you’ll have a chance to get time-sensitive updates on current issues from state and regional extension personnel, exchange info with other growers, get answers to your questions, or just listen in or maybe bounce your thoughts off of others. Kathy Demchak will be your weekly host.  

 

Calls are open to PVGA members and non-members to maximize information exchange, so spread the word and invite your friends and neighbors to join. How long we stay on the call, and how far calls continue into the summer depends on how many people join and how the conversation is going – this is our first attempt at something like this, so we’ll just see how things go!!
