Turning the Corner: Transitioning from Winter to Spring [CRAFT]

March 5, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Is there anything as wonderful as the transition from winter to spring? Turning this first corner in the growing season is an early step toward all of the crops (and work) to come. Being prepared at this critical time of year can save you several weeks of work, can make you the first farm to market, and will make your season more enjoyable.

Join us to learn about the valuable preparation work that can be done at this time of year to set the stage for things to come.

Speakers

Nick Lubecki started his first vegetable farm in 2012 in the Stanton Heights neighborhood of Pittsburgh. He ran his small farm businesses, Butter Hill Farm, which sold vegetables to farm markets, CSA and restaurants on two acres until 2015. He began working at Grow Pittsburgh in 2016 managing Shiloh Farm, a small intensive urban farm, as well as the Frick Greenhouse. In 2018 he began managing Braddock Farm, a one acre urban farm which aims to produce affordable food to sell in Braddock while teaching people how to grow vegetables.
