Farm OPS, a project of the Cornell Small Farms Program, is providing series of training workshops throughout 2019 for veterans interested in agriculture. Veterans interested in these programs must be enrolled at a VA facility in NYS (VISN2 area).
Interested in growing in high tunnels? Join this engaging workshop on the fundamentals of starting plants in a high tunnel. Participants will learn how to select and manage appropriate crops via the topics of: varietal selection, crop nutrients, pest and disease management, as well as take a 'nuts-and-bolts' tour to discuss site selection and design considerations.
This workshop will be led by CCE Educator and Vegetable Specialist Judson Reid.
Understanding different cultures and their impact on agricultural practices has long been an interest of Judson Reid, leading to his International Agriculture major at Cornell University during his undergrad studies. Judson worked for Cornell Cooperative Extension of Yates County for several years before completing his master degree in plant protection in the field of Plant Pathology and joining the Cornell Vegetable Program team of specialists in 2005. Today, Judson focuses on cultural practices, small farm operations and season extension techniques.
This workshop will be held at the EquiCenter Farm, and lunch is provided.
It is recommended that students arrive around 9:30 a.m. to get coffee, tea and snacks, and get checked-in and settled before the class begins.
