In-Person Meeting Advanced Grower Intensive

December 6, 2022 @ 8:45 am - 4:15 pm

Join us at the Nurture Nature Center for a full day of presentations from regional vegetable growers, on topics including irrigation, nutrient management, and farm profitability.

This full day meeting is intended for professional vegetable growers with a minimum of five years management experience to dig deep on issues that contribute to farm profitability. 

The morning presentation and farmer-to-farmer breakout sessions will focus on irrigation. Jennifer Glennister of New Morning Farm will discuss the logistics of managing irritation on large and small farms, balancing irrigation with other work schedules (i.e. cultivation and harvest), and the impact of irrigation on farm profitability in a dry year.

The afternoon presentation and farmer-to-farmer breakout sessions will focus on nutrient management to build soils and meet crop needs.

These presentations will be complemented by breakout sessions for facilitated group discussion, where you’ll have the chance to raise the questions that matter most to your farm, share your own insights and experiences, and learn directly from your peers. 

We’ll conclude with a panel discussion focusing on how irrigation and nutrient management impact farm profitability.

Stick around for Farm Bill Happy Hour! Enjoy some refreshments and connect with Pasa’s Farm Bill Campaign Organizer Lindsey Shapiro about how the 2023 Farm Bill can better support your operation.

This event is presented in partnership with Penn State Extension and Buy Fresh Buy Local of the Greater Lehigh Valley.
